"I remember when Dr. King was killed, there was nothing open in downtown Memphis. Businesses were closed, the Peabody was boarded up. The city didn't want black people on Main Street, so they closed it too. They didn't say that was the reason, but in my opinion, that's why they did it. Things have changed a little bit since those days, but there's still a lot of racial tension here. It's based on fear, I think. Fear on both sides of the fence."
