Truth at Last: The Assassination of Martin Luther King

Jan 19, 2024 | History, Videos

On April 4th, 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King made history with a powerful speech against the Vietnam War at Riverside Church in New York City. The speech was met with both praise and criticism, but for Dr. King and his allies it was just the beginning of what would become an even more divided civil rights movement.

Exactly one year later, on April 4th 1968, Dr. King’s life was tragically cut short by an assassin’s bullet while he stood on the balcony of a motel in Memphis, Tennessee. Now, over 50 years later, questions surrounding his untimely death remain unanswered.

In commemoration of this solemn day and the legacy of its namesake, the Corbett Report has released their documentary Truth at Last: The Assassination of Martin Luther King – an examination of the causes and effects between these two events that shook the nation to its core.
