He slew the dreamer; my search, with James Earl Ray, for the truth about the murder of Martin Luther King by William Bradford Huie( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Author William Bradford Huie was one of the most celebrated figures of twentieth-century journalism. A pioneer of "checkbook journalism," he sought the truth in controversial stories when the truth was hard to come by. In the case of James Earl Ray, Huie paid Ray and his original attorneys $40,000 for cooperation in explaining his movements in the months before Martin Luther King's assassination and up to Ray's arrest weeks later in London. Huie became a major figure in the investigation of King's assassination and was one of the few persons able to communicate with Ray during that time. Huie, a friend of King, writes that he went into his investigation of Ray believing that a conspiracy was behind King's murder. But after retracing Ray's movements through California, Louisiana, Mexico, Canada, Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, and London, Huie came to believe that James Earl Ray was a pathetic petty criminal who hated African Americans and sought to make a name for himself by murdering King. He Slew the Dreamer was originally published in 1970 soon after Ray went to prison and was republished in 1977, but was out of print until the 1997 edition, published with the cooperation of Huie's widow. This new edition features an essay by scholar Riché Richardson that provides fresh insight, and it includes the 1977 prologue, which Huie wrote countering charges by members of Congress, the King family, and others who claimed the FBI had aided and abetted Ray. In 1970, 1977, 1997, and now, He Slew the Dreamer offers a remarkably detailed examination of the available evidence at the time the murder occurred and an invaluable resource to current debates over the King assassination." -- Provided by publisher

Frame-up : the assassination of Martin Luther King by Harold Weisberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Back in print with its original title, Harold Weisberg's detailed and devastating analysis of the Martin Luther King assassination is as timely as ever. Originally published in 1970, this book examines the circumstances of the murder, accused assassin James Earl Ray's flight and capture, and the failures of the justice system in this case. While many books about the King assassination have followed Frame-Up, this work remains unrivaled in its retelling of the circumstances which led Ray to plead guilty in a grossly inadequate "mini trial," and Ray's almost immediate fai
