In advance of Martin Luther King Jr Day, we will screen the civil rights documentary Roads to Memphis. From Emmy Award-winning director Stephen Ives, this film tells the stories of an assassin, James Earl Ray, and his target, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., against the backdrop of the seething and turbulent forces roiling American society that led these two men to a violent and tragic collision in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968. Join us at our Film Club to explore how social change is achieved only by the overwhelming force of the human spirit.
