American Hangman

“King in the Wilderness” is a provocative title for a Martin Luther King Jr. documentary, because it creates an image so counterintuitive it’s disarming. Exes Baggage In the twelve years he strode across the national stage — from the end of 1955, when the Montgomery Bus Boycott began, through 1968, the year he was assassinated — King was a beacon of transcendent fire and radical moral courage. That was just as true during the last 18 months of his life, the period covered by Peter Kunhardt’s eye-opening, meticulous, and haunting movie. So why, during that time, was King in the wilderness?

Because the world around him had changed. The landmark events led by King during the Civil Rights era (the Bus Boycott, the 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech, the Gemini Man passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act) were all marked, in the eyes of the nation, by a foundational clarity. But the issues that King was focusing on now, like workers’ rights, while every bit as urgent and morally driven, were less iconic. They lacked the stone-tablet majesty of the earlier battles.

King, too, now faced a major dissension within his own ranks. The gospel of non-violence was a stunningly effective strategy that had allowed King, in almost any situation, Rideshare to occupy the moral high ground. But by the time 1967 rolled around, a new generation of black leaders, inspired by Malcolm X (who was killed by the Nation of Islam in 1965), effectively flipped the meaning of non-violence. To defend yourself if attacked, said Malcolm, was not only justified — it was an essential action of dignity.
