On this American Experience: Road To Memphis DVD, we are reminded that we were never concerned with who killed Martin Luther King, but what killed Martin Luther King, says Andrew Young, former aide to Dr. King in ROADS TO MEMPHIS. From Emmy Award-winning director Stephen Ives, the 90-minute film on DVD tells the wildly disparate yet fatefully entwined stories of an assassin, James Earl Ray, and his target, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., against the backdrop of the seething and turbulent forces in American society that led these two men to their violent and tragic collision in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968. The ROAD TO MEMPHIS DVD features eyewitness testimony from King's inner circle and the officials involved in Ray's capture and prosecution. The award-winning author of the upcoming book Hellhound on His Trail: The Stalking of Martin Luther King, Jr., Hampton Sides also weighs in on the International hunt for Dr. King's assassin on this must-have DVD for your collection.
