Theres more to history than you might think! In 2 films, Prime Suspects: Who Killed Martin Luther King Jr.? (Court TV, 2000, 37 min.) and Truth At Last: The Assassination of Martin Luther King (James Corbett, 2018, 51 min.), the official story of the murder is convincingly disproved  James Earl Ray did not kill King  through the decades-long work of William F. Pepper, attorney, investigator, and author, an influential friend of Martin King in the last year of his life, and attorney for the King family. Pepper, in his third and final book on King's 1968 murder, The Plot to Kill King (2017), revealed the disturbing truth with startling and explosive conclusions largely ignored by the media. Discussion will follow the screening of the films.
