Memphis Symphony Orchestra says
Pre-show music by Memphis Symphony Orchestra string quartet
(3:10 pm - 3:30 pm)

Featuring Q&A with director Prichard Smith, Producer Chad Schaffler, Executive Producer Craig Brewer and The Invaders members
Runtime: 76 minutes

Inspired by militant black leaders like Malcolm X and Stokely Carmichael, a new, radicalized generation of civil rights activists made up of young college students, Vietnam vets, musicians, and intellectuals emerged in Memphis in 1967. The Invaders espoused Black Power and, when pushed, did not limit themselves to non-violence. 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.
