MLK-jer

In earlier postings on this blog, you can see and hear brief interviews with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and James Earl Ray.  Ray was a prisoner at Brushy Mountain State Prison in Tennessee when he agreed to  talk with me on camera  .   We interviewed Dr. King in many different locations.    Most of them were in Atlanta.   He usually made us wait.   We learned early on that he was on CPT.    I remember when he came to a scheduled  2 p.m.   news conference at 2:30.   Perhaps in a humorous attempt to explain his tardiness, King rhetorically asked if we didn’t know that he was on CPT…Colored People Time.   James Earl Ray was on time the first and only time I interviewed him in person.   The prison guards controlled his schedule.    As we observe MLK day Monday, how will you spend your time?  Do you believe that Ray was the assassin..the only assassin of the Baptist minister?
