Per Fagereng interviews Dr. William Pepper about the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Pepper is the author of "An Act of State," a compelling and authoritative account of how King’s challenge to the US establishment led inexorably to his murder.
William Pepper was a young journalist, just back from Vietnam, when he first met Martin Luther King Jr. His photographs and first-hand accounts of the war prompted King’s unflinching opposition to the war. His investigations of King’s assassination included extensive interviews with James Earl Ray. Pepper is an English barrister who convenes a seminar on International Human Rights at Oxford University and maintains practices in the US and the UK. He is the author of three other books and numerous articles.
