At The River I Stand examines the events leading up to the Memphis sanitation workers strike, Dr. Martin Luther Kings's involvement in the strike, and his subsequent assassination in Memphis. At a pivotal point in the Poor People's Campaign, while planning a massive march on Washington for fair wages, Dr. King weighed the advise of his most trusted advisers and determined that his involvement in the Memphis garbage workers' campaign was necessary.
The story is one much deeper than Dr. King's personal demise, one that has continuing repercussions today. This is an excellent film that adds greatly to our limited understanding of the events of that time.
