Reenacts King's life, beginning with his childhood in Atlanta and his relationship with his family. Covers King's becoming a minister in Montgomery, Alabama, where he worked for equality for African Americans. Mentions Rosa Parks, the 1963 Washington march, his "I Have a Dream" speech, and that he received the Nobel Peace Prize. Does not mention his death.
Great resource for MLK Jr Day. Students enjoyed learning about his life. They really enjoy the biographies. Thank you!
Loved the content and the facts that gave some background knowledge other than what is usually said about MLK. The boyhood information helped my middle schoolers relate to him better.
The kids were engrossed in this film. They really liked the reenactment format.
