Jerry Ray, brother of the convicted assassin James Earl Ray, tells his unique perspective of the 1968 Martin Luther King, Jr. assassination in A Memoir of Injustice. The book, released last year, gives a first person account of a tumultuous time.
Publisher Kris Millegan states: “With the upcoming national holiday, it is fitting for us to heed the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. from his 1964 Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech: ‘I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.’
“Memoir of Injustice includes previously undisclosed information on one of the most significant events in modern American history, debunking the myth that James Earl Ray was a racist and documents his actual location on one of the critical days leading up to the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. The book gives the key to a code used by the brothers in planning a prison break, and presents a telling account on the manipulation of the media in reporting on race relations and the U.S. criminal justice system. Memoir of Injustice broadcasts an urgent call to action to correct some of the many injustices that surround these events, such as the U.S. government's refusal to rigorously test the alleged murder weapon, and encourages support for new federal legislation.”
Former Congressman Cynthia McKinney says about Memoir of Injustice: “The truth of the MLK assassination has never been totally revealed. The FBI’s, COINTELPRO, CIA’s CHAOS and Army Intelligence’s Operation Lantern Spike all worked together to prevent the rise of a 'black messiah' and replace Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a 'clean Negro.' Tamara Carter is a knowledgeable researcher, who assisted in the drafting of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Records Act that I introduced in Congress. Her book provides new details about James Earl Ray, the patsy who was framed for killing Dr. King, but was clearly innocent. Only with excellent research like this will we get to the truth.”
Jerry Ray is an activist and unintentional witness to the events surrounding the Martin Luther King Jr. assassination. He has appeared on Good Morning America, the Phil Donahue Show, and the Tavis Smiley Show. Tamara Carter is an activist, a teacher, and an independent researcher of the Martin Luther King Jr. and JFK assassinations. She is also a charter member and organizer of the Coalition on Political Assassinations.
