"I wondered for many years," reveals the Rev. Samuel Billy Kyles, "why I was there at that crucial moment." Rev. Kyles stood only a few feet away from Dr. Martin Luther King when the eminent civil rights leader was assassinated. This Academy Award-nominated documentary features Rev. Kyles' reflections on the tragedy-and on the events leading up to it, most notably the sanitation workers' strike that Dr. King had come to Memphis to support. A view into the development of the SCLC's Poor People's Campaign, the film includes interviews with Maxine Smith, then executive secretary of the Memphis NAACP branch, Dr. Benjamin Hooks, former NAACP executive director, and Taylor Rodgers, one of the original sanitation workers who marched alongside Kind and Kyles, among others
