At the River I Stand (1993): David Appleby and Allison Graham’s Historically Signiciant Docu

It is only 56 minute long, but every minute counts in At the River I Stand, a moving, socially and historically significant documentary by David Appleby and Allison Graham.
The docu, narrated by Oscar nominee Paul Winfield (“Sounder”) recounts the two months leading to Martin Luther King Jr.’s death in 1968, coinciding with the 65-day strike of 1300 Memphis sanitation workers.
Among the most dramatic and touching moments are watching a sign designating a drinking fountain as “for whites only,” and a sanitation worker, beaten and humiliated, carrying a sign that states: “I Am a Man.”
