Lorraine Motel, Memphis, TN
About the artwork
Lorraine Motel, Memphis, TN is the the site of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination but currently/dually the site of the National Civil Rights Museum. The Lorraine was one of the few places Blacks were allowed to stay in Memphis, and even after his assassination remained a low-rent flexible timed housing option for those in need of such. People lived in The Lorraine right up until the construction of the National Civil Rights Museum, with the last resident (Jacqueline Smith) being forcibly ejected and left with nowhere to live. She still can be found protesting outside of the National Civil Rights Museum in the exact spot she landed when they threw her from The Lorraine.
