    Roads to Memphis: American Experience
    "We were never concerned with who killed Martin Luther King but what killed Martin Luther King," says Andrew Young, former aide to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. From Emmy Award-winning director Stephen Ives, this film tells the wildly disparate 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. With eyewitness testimony from King's inner circle.
