Preview | 30s

Martin Luther King, Jr. stakes out new ground for himself and the Civil Rights Movement; he opposes the Vietnam War and his SCLC embarks on the Poor People's Campaign. In the midst of organizing, King detours to Memphis, where he is assassinated. King's death and the failure of his final campaign mark the end of a major stream of the movement. From the award-winning doc series "Eyes on the Prize."
