SNEAK PREVIEW: HBO’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Documentary


HBO has released the trailer to the new documentary King in the Wilderness which shows the final years of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The film is said to reveal a very “dark and dangerous period in the long struggle for equality,” according to HBO and shows the tensions between King and the leaders of the Black Power movement, the group’s resistance to his approach of nonviolence, and the backlash from President Lyndon B. Johnson when King condemned the Vietnam War.

HBO‘s King in the Wilderness will premiere April 2nd, two days before the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. King.
