Rihanna Shares Photos From Trip To Site Of MLK Assassination

Rihanna has shared pictures from a road trip to Lorraine Motel in Memphis, the site of Martin Luther King Jr.‘s assassination.

“Finally found em’…. got cabin fever last summer and took a road trip to Memphis,” RiRi captioned the three pictures from her trip to the Tennessee site where King was assassinated in 1968 at age 39.

One of the snaps shows the singer, wearing sweatpants, a T-shirt and a mask, standing underneath the motel’s sign. Another is taken from behind Rihanna as she looks up at another neon sign on the side of the building.

The third picture shows Rihanna pointing to room 306, in front of which King was shot and killed. The balcony is adorned with a wreath, while a plaque has been set below the room in honor of King.

RiRi also encouraged others to make a visit to the motel, saying, “MAN… I can’t describe the feeling that came over me, you gotta go to experience it for yourself! #MLK.”
