The leader of the Civil Rights movement, a passionate advocate of non-violent resistance who had studied Gandhi's methods and brought them to bear on American racism, Martin Luther King, Jr. moved the nation toward justice through the sheer force of his personality and conviction. But on April 4, 1968, a sniper's bullet claimed King's life as he stood on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee. Almost immediately, there were charges of cover-ups and government complicity in the crime.
CONSPIRACY? reveals how those suspicions have lingered for decades, and examines the evidence which suggests they might be grounded in reality. Experts analyze the competing versions, from the official story naming James Earl Ray as the lone killer to the 1978 House Select Committee on Assassinations report which proposed that Ray acted on behalf of a conspiracy.
Detailed, far-reaching and filled with expert interviews, WHO KILLED MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.? is the ultimate examination of one of the 20th century's defining events.
