Abstract:

The FBI and the CIA once called Martin Luther King, Jr. the most dangerous man in the U.S. William Sullivan, assistant director of the FBI, once urged Dr. King to kill himself for the good of the country in a document recently declassified. This documentary examines the government's involvement in harassment of Dr. King. Uses a variety of recently declassified information--including private conversations taped at the Johnson White House--to re-examine the counter-intelligence programs that preceded the assassination. Also investigates the conviction of James Earl Ray, who has never been placed at the scene of the crime by any credible witnesses. Includes new interviews with Rev. James Lawson, who invited Dr. King to Memphis; Wayne Chastain, who was the first reporter to interview James Earl Ray; Athan Theoharis, who received access to declassified FBI files; and Rev. Samuel Billy Kyles, who spent the last hour with Dr. King.
