The Power of Amnesty
by Saab Lofton
He worked for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from 1966 to 1967 ("the most important experience of my life" as he put it). His 1972 documentary, It's Ours Whatever They Say, won the Silver Medal at the Venice Film Festival and his column regularly appears in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post and The Boston Globe. He is Jonathan Power, Amnesty International's point man, and I feel so honored to have been able to interview this real-life superhero.
