“King in the Wilderness” is a 2018 documentary that covers the last years of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The film begins in 1965 around the time of that year’s Voting Rights Act and ends with King’s assassination in 1968. Spanning just 18 months of an incredible life, we get great insight into the expansion of King’s campaigns which placed greater focus on economic issues. There’s also an in-depth discussion of the pressures and criticisms that he faced during this less celebrated period that was no less important than his earlier work.
