Ripple Of Hope

Series Website »
A Ripple of Hope film dramatically retells the events of April 4, 1968, the day that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated outside a Memphis hotel room. It poignantly retraces the steps of Presidential Candidate Robert Kennedy as he absorbs the news of the killing and responds with courage and compassion. With digitally restored news footage and original music by John Colby, Grammy Award winning music director of the Ken Burns Civil War soundtrack, A Ripple of Hope dramatically narrates the events of that tragic day 40 years ago thru the eyes of those who were there.
