In April 1968, the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. shocked the nation, but largely lost in the scramble for stories were accounts of attacks and humiliations of this Nobel Prize winner's civil rights final year. Tavis Smiley's Death of a King chronicles these twelve months, reminding how vilification by the FBI, politicians, and even fellow civil rights leaders challenged this visionary on almost every front. The popular PBS host describes how despite these challenges, King fought on against rampant racism, poverty, and militarism.
