April 4, 2018, marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of civil-rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. HBO commemorates the milestone two days earlier with King in the Wilderness (8 ET/PT), a documentary about the last three years of his life, a period described as his most difficult.
King in the Wilderness “captures the passion and fear and determination that Dr. King felt at the end of his life,” director Peter Kunhardt says in a statement provided by HBO. Those final years were “a dark and dangerous period in the long struggle for equality. King himself described it as a time when his dream for America turned into a nightmare.”
