Martin Luther King, Jr. : the man and the dream by Coleen Degnan-Veness( Visual )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the violent aftermath of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s death, a movement arose almost immediately to properly memorialize him. In 1968 Representative John Conyers (Dem.) of Michigan authored Bill S400, which proposed to make King's birthday, January 15th, a national holiday. Not surprizingly, there was intense opposition to the Bill from right-wing, ultra conservatives in the Congress under the leadership of Jessie Helms. But there were equally intense lobbying efforts, culminating in the second March on Washington in 1983 (the 20th anniversary of the first March). The support of the popular imagination for the Bill was caught by a birthday song for King, composed specifically for the occasion by pop-star Stevie Wonder. With the aid of important congressmen like Ted Kennedy and "Tip" O'Neil the Bill was finally passed and then signed into law by President Reagan on November 2, 1983 in the presence of King's widow, Coretta Scott King. The film includes scenes from the March of 1983 and the unveiling of a bust of King in the Capitol in early 1986 just before the first celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a national holiday
