Today we mourn human rights lawyer William Pepper, who worked tirelessly to bring out the truth about the assassination of his friend, Dr. Martin Luther King.

Bill passed away at age 86 on Sunday April 7- just a few days after the 56th anniversary of Dr. King’s murder on April 4th, 1968.

A year to the day earlier, Dr. King made a courageous public stand against the Vietnam War. King made his decision to go public against the war in part because of Bill’s haunting photo essay in Rampart’s Magazine, The Children of Vietnam, which showed the horrifying effects of the American bombing campaign.

Bill, may you rest in the peace that you and Dr. King gave your lives to.
