A staunch advocate of peaceful resistance to injustice and racial violence, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood at the vortex of the U.S. civil rights movement of the 1960s. He became a national leader, and his death at the hands of an assassin in 1968 was grieved by both blacks and whites. In this award-winning documentary, writer/director Thomas Friedman takes a look Reverend King's ideas, actions, and influence on the fight to end racial segregation. Narrated by Arthur Berghardt, the program's highlights include rare archival footage, photographs, and interviews with King associates. The show was produced by Melissa Wegman and edited by David Kalish, with music by Rocco Lombardo. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
