The Day the Music Died

Whether you’re black or white, you’ll remember where you were on June 25, 2009, the day one of the greatest entertainers of all time passed away. Fans all over the world mourned Michael Jackson’s death.

The King of Pop was remembered in his hometown of Indiana, at his family’s Encino home, at Harlem’s historic Apollo Theater, and by those who gathered outside UCLA Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
