Here is an expanded and recently transferred version of Merv Griffin’s 1967 interview with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on The Merv Griffin Show. We recently discovered the lost master tape of this show and we’ve had it newly transferred. In this segment Dr. King shares with Merv his take on the then-current state of the Civil Rights movement in America.
This is stunning quality compared to what we had earlier and we’re thrilled to have found the original master and that this important piece of American history is now preserved in pristine condition.
Merv Griffin had over 5000 guests appear on his show from 1963-1986. A new box set of many of the most incredible interviews is available here.
