  1. Martin Luther King also gave an eerily prophetic speech the day before he was tragically assassinated. On 3 April 1968, King traveled to Memphis, USA in support of black sanitary public works employees, who had been on strike for higher wages and better treatment.

    King’s flight to Memphis had been delayed by a bomb threat against his plane and in the close of the speech King made reference to the bomb threat and said:

    “Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn’t matter with me now. Because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land. So I’m happy, tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.”
