This documentary recalls the April 4, 1968, assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis, as well as the events that preceded and followed it. The documentary features footage that originally aired in 1968 and audiotapes of police calls from the tragic day. Included: King’s visits to the city to march with the striking sanitation workers,; his famed “Mountaintop” speech, the manhunt for his killer, and Coretta Scott King and her children marching in Memphis days after his death.

April 4, 1968. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is gunned down on the balcony of a hotel in Memphis, Tennessee. It was all caught on film, tape and audio. So why have we seen so little of it? The well-known photograph of Dr. King’s aides pointing toward the direction of the gunfire is iconic, but tells only part of the story. For the first time, a remarkable collection of recently rediscovered footage has been chronologically reassembled. The resulting documentary allows us to revisit the tumultuous events surrounding one of the most shocking assassinations in America and relive history through the voices of the era.
