King in the Wilderness

King in the Wilderness

Through personal stories of the people who were around him, this film follows Martin Luther King, Jr. during the last years of his life: from the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965 to his assassination in 1968. This period, which is largely left out of the history books, provides a clear window into King's character, as a man with an unshakeable commitment to nonviolence in the face of an increasingly unstable country.
