The Black Nation Commemorates a Hero
Film: At the River I Stand
This film reconstructs the two eventful months in 1968 that led to the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It shows how Memphis’s Black community rallied behind a strike led by 1,300 sanitation workers for a living wage, summed up by the slogan ‘I Am a Man.’ King joined their struggle to his growing nationwide Poor People’s Campaign. His non-violent strategy was sorely tested during the 65-day strike, and on April 4, 1968, he was murdered.
