WHEN HARLEM SAVED A KING
Director: Al Cohen
Country: USA, Running Time: 90 min

Unraveling the 1958 stabbing of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by a mentally ill woman named Izola Ware Curry with a letter Opener. After being rushed to Harlem Hospital, had Dr. King nearly sneezed before they were able to remove the dagger from his aorta, he would have died and the Civil Rights movement as we know it today would have never happened.
