Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Ted N. Berry remembers exactly where he was when he heard that the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., was dead. He and his father, Theodore M. Berry, were watching a movie in Washington, D.C., when the theater stopped the film and announced the news. Everyone left the theater in the middle of the movie, he said, and by the time he and his dad got home, they could see gray smoke across town. “Northwest Washington was literally going up in smoke, people hitting the streets in anger and hurt and frustration,” Berry recalled. “How could they murder this messenger of love and tolerance?”
