Witness From the Balcony of Room 306
This short yet sensitively-felt documentary was helmed by Rev. Samuel "Billy" Kyles, one of a handful of witnesses to the murder of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968. That evening, Kyles stood beside King on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, as a bullet rang out and ended the life of the godfather of American Civil Rights. In this film, Kyles reflects at length on the events that led up to King's brutal assassination, including King's reasons for visiting Memphis and the terrible events of that final hour.
