The Awful Grace of God
April 4, 2012 marks the 44th anniversary of the assassination of civil rights leader and anti-war activist Martin Luther King, Jr. This year also brings a new book which provides fresh light on what a Congressional investigation called the "likelihood of conspiracy" in Dr. King's death.
Well-known in the JFK research community, Stuart Wexler and Larry Hancock have dug into the declassified record on the King case, and conducted their own interviews and investigation. Their work focues on the anti-black religious terrorism of the 1950s and 1960s and the documented plots against Dr. King undertaken by groups such as the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan of Mississippi.
Sifting through FBI informant reports never seen by the House investigators, Wexler and Hancock present evidence tying specific individuals to the Memphis murder conspiracy, trace the connections and money offers, and examine the likely role of James Earl Ray, whom they portray as neither a lone killer nor an innocent patsy.
Larry Hancock is the author of the acclaimed Someone Would Have Talked on the JFK assassination, as well as the recent book Nexus: The CIA and Political Assassination. Stuart Wexler's work on the MLK case has been featured in the Boston Globe and on NBC News.
The Awful Grace of God is available in hardcover and electronic format at amazon.com.
