To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, as well as other notable events during the Civil Rights Movement, Comcast is traveling across the country and producing a series of video interviews with leaders, participants, and beneficiaries of the Movement.  Through commentary and archived footage, His Dream, Our Stories, chronicles the March, the movement and the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. through over 100 interviews.

Reverend Samuel “Billy” Kyles was a witness to history. He was one of few men on the balcony at the Lorraine Hotel with Martin Luther King, Jr. when he was assassinated in Memphis. Watch Kyles recount the moment King was gunned down. He even shared the story behind the now famous photo of King’s companions pointing from the balcony.
