This month marks the 46th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. To honor his life, we will screen the rarely seen documentary “Inside Story – Who Killed Martin Luther King?” (64 minutes). This film reveals much of the evidence that led up to and was uncovered in the landmark 1999 wrongful death civil lawsuit, King Family vs. Loyd Jowers and Other Unknown Co-conspirators.
Because of a virtual blackout by corporate-controlled media (only one local network news reporter attended the courtroom proceedings), most Americans are not aware of this historic trial, which lasted over four weeks and included testimonies from over 70 subpoenaed witnesses. The jury, after only one hour of deliberation, reached a unanimous guilty verdict, finding that Loyd Jowers, agents of the Memphis Police Department, the CIA, the FBI, and organized crime mafia kingpins had conspired to commit the murder of Dr. King.
Mrs. Coretta Scott King stated during a press conference following the trial, “The jury also affirmed overwhelming evidence that identified someone else, not James Earl Ray, as the shooter, and that Mr. Ray was set up to take the blame. I want to make it clear that my family has no interest in retribution. Instead, our sole concern has been that the full truth of the assassination has been revealed and adjudicated in a court of law…”
Attorney Dr. William Pepper, who represented the King family in that civil lawsuit, is also featured in this revealing documentary. He detailed the evidence and the wrongful death civil trial in his book, An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King. Though breaking news, Pepper's book was not reviewed by the mainstream media.
This momentous court case should be widely known by Americans and taught in American public schools and universities, but sadly, most Americans remain uninformed about the truth of Dr. King's assassination.
Please join us this month as we screen this exceptional documentary, which exposes yet another piece of the bigger picture, and which also shines light on the machinations behind the numerous State Crimes Against Democracy.
