Luther King House
Luther King House,
M14 5JP, UK
The world has been marking the 50th anniversary year of the assassination of Baptist Minister Rev Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. On 4th April 1968, Dr. King was fatally shot on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel, cutting short the life of the man who had become the conscience of America, indeed the world.
Luther King House is privileged to announce this special screening of an extraordinary film made in 1970 called ‘King – From Montgomery to Memphis’. A rarely seen documentary, the film traces King’s life and accomplishments from the 1955 bus boycott to his 1968 assassination. His structural analysis of race, economy and war – and his solutions – were way ahead of his time.
KING was originally presented as a one-night-only special event on March 20, 1970. Newly restored by the Library of Congress, in association with Richard Kaplan, and utilising film elements provided by The Museum of Modern Art, the original version of KING can again be seen in its entirety.
A pdf leaflet is available for you to download, print and distribute. This can be found here.
There is free admission to this event, and booking is not essential, but it would be helpful to have some idea of numbers, so please let us know if you hope to attend.
