By Mary Aline Fertin
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., made five public appearances in Durham between 1956 and 1964. His penultimate visit was to Duke, where he spoke in Page Auditorium on November 17, 1964. Dr. King had planned to make an additional visit to Durham in 1968, but cancelled the trip to travel to Memphis, where he was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel.
