Screening of the Documentary "The Invaders" and Q&A with John Burl Smith

Released in 2016, the tantalizing documentary The Invaders vividly retells the story of a civil rights activist group that emerged in Memphis in 1967. Director, producer and Memphis native Prichard Smith uncovers the history and significance of the often-overlooked group, detailing their surprising behind-the-scenes involvement with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the pivotal days leading up to his assassination .

John Burl Smith is a writer, Black Power advocate, and community organizer, hailing from Memphis, based in Atlanta. He holds a BA in psychology and has written a self-published novel: “Archangel: A Hip-Hop Vision of Love.” He is currently finalizing his memoir: “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Last Strategy Meeting: The Invaders Story.” He is also involved in “400th,” an international event that aims to commemorate four hundred years of slavery in 2019.
