Program Description

Martin Luther King stakes out new ground for himself and the rapidly fragmenting civil rights movement. One year before his death, he publicly opposes the war in Vietnam. His Southern Christian Leadership Conference embarks on an ambitious Poor People's Campaign. In the midst of political organizing, King detours to support striking sanitation works in Memphis, where he is assassinated. King's death and the failure of his final campaign mark the end of a major stream of the movement.
