Andre King and Alex Wells will co-host a screening of the 1968 documentary “Free at Last – Martin Luther King, Jr.” at the Hyannis Public Library on Thursday, 18th January at 4pm.
 
“On April 4, 1968, an assassin’s bullet ended Martin Luther King Jr.’s life. For several months leading up to that, Dr. King was being filmed by a crew from THIRTEEN’s Public Broadcasting Laboratory series as they followed his Poor People’s Campaign. The film was hurriedly finished and broadcast the week following the assassination. It included PBL photographer Joseph Louw’s eyewitness testimony about photographing the slain Dr. King at the scene of his murder. Free at Last – Martin Luther King, Jr. won an Emmy Award for Best Documentary.”
