Abstract:

"In March 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. went to Memphis, Tennessee to rally support for a group of striking sanitation workers. The strike was dividing the city; pitting the Mayor and the predominately white City Council against the all black sanitation workers. Through two witnesses, the Reverend Samuel Kyles, a prominent civil rights activist in Memphis at that time and Lewis Donelson, a former member of the Memphis City Council, Channel One traces the events that led King to Memphis in the spring of 19689 [i.e. 1968] and to what would be his final civil rights battle. On April 3, when King delivered his famous 'Mountain Top Speech' from the pulpit of the Masonic temple, negotiations between the strikers and the City were deadlocked. For those who heard his speech that night, it changed their lives--not only because of the power of King's words, but also because of King's own eerie sense that his death was imminent. Reverend Samuel Kyles was one of those witnesses. Through his testimony, Reverend Kyle takes us on a step by step journey that explores the difficult plight of the sanitation workers and the gradual decision by Martin Luther King to become involved in the strike. Reverend Kyles sets the stage for the confrontation and gives us a very personal glimpse into the final days of Martin Luther King's life"--1994 Peabody Awards entry form.
