Monday, May 3 at 9pm on PBS. A riveting crosscut narrative of a killer and his prey, ROADS TO MEMPHIS is the fateful story of an assassin and his target set against the seething, turbulent forces in American society that drove two men to their violent and tragic collision on April 4, 1968. In this clip, author Hampton Sides (Hellhound on His Trail: The Stalking of Martin Luther King Jr. and the International Manhunt for his Assassin) describes why James Earl Ray set his sights on King. pbs.org/americanexperience
