MLK The Assassination Tapes: For the first time, long-lost tapes and rediscovered images detail the tragedy of the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.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.

I enjoyed this documentary. However, I wish there'd been more information concerning the alleged killer, James Earl Ray. How did he get out of the city, let alone the country all on his own? How is it that he "escaped" when the police were surrounding the hotel and were 2 minutes away? Why was the gun found so conveniently close by? Why were the people who said that he was NOT the guy they saw not listened to and the people who towed the party line that he WAS the shooter given credence? So many questions, so few answers. I always watch the documentaries about Kennedy's assassination and often wondered why there weren't any concerning MLK's assassination, happy to have found this one. Hopefully more information will come forward in my life time. It's so sad that so much hate was present back then, that boycotting was even necessary, but whats even more depressing is this atmosphere of hate, racism and bigotry was only 44 years ago. Scary thought indeed.
