"My kids were enthralled.
Four rambunctious boys who normally can’t sit still for more than two seconds [were] riveted by the history these five actors shared with them"
"[Mike Brown's] impassioned recreation of the titular speech is a truly stirring moment."
The phenomenal impact of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is chronicled in this compelling dramatization of the life and times of one of the most influential and charismatic leaders of the American Century. Inspired by the arrest of Rosa Parks, Dr. King puts his philosophy of nonviolent protest to work. He gains recognition and becomes the dominant force in the Civil Rights Movement during its decade of greatest achievement.
Length: 1 hour
Suggested for ages 7 and up.
