(1929-1968) Moving interviews with civil rights leaders Andrew Young and James Farmer detail the inspirational life of Martin Luther King, Jr. Born in Atlanta, King was the son of a preacher and a church musician. He became a minister himself, inspired by his father's associate, Benjamin Mays, and by the teachings of Gandhi, whose nonviolent approach to social change he adopted. With Rosa Parks's arrest in 1955, King's desegregation efforts began in earnest. He formed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and motivated lunch counter sit-ins, the Freedom Riders and the removal of "For Colored Only" signs. In 1964, King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and became a pivotal force in the passing of the voting rights law. King was assassinated on April 4,1968. Part of the Black Americans of Achievement Video Collection that celebrates the most influential African Americans in history.

Only available in the US.
