Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: an Historical Perspective
He was the conscience of the struggle for civil rights—and one of its many heroic martyrs. This program offers a one-of-a-kind examination of Dr. King’s extraordinary life. Using rare and largely unseen film footage and photographs, this film—endorsed by the King Foundation—explores how Dr. King’s ideas, beliefs and methods evolved in the face of the rapidly changing climate of the Civil Rights Movement. To study Dr. King’s compelling and magnificent life is to understand that social change and enlightenment are brought about only by the overwhelming force of the human spirit.
