American heroes & heroines : Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A combination of costumed re-enactments and archival footage of the civil rights movement shows how our country₂s foremost civil rights leader transformed race relations in America. The program first shows young Martin as a child in Atlanta, where he experiences racial discrimination. When the mother of two of his friends says he can no longer play with her children, Martin₂s mother explains why. Martin also is seen being denied access to swimming pools, restaurants and other public places. But he is an excellent student, sharpens his speaking skills, and graduates from high school two years early. He is then seen at Morehouse College, where he studies philosophy and comes to believe that love is the best way to fight discrimination. The next part of the program shows Dr. King as a minister in Montgomery, Alabama. There, Dr. King becomes a major force in the Montgomery bus strike, which thrusts him into the national spotlight. Dr. King is then seen planning and leading demonstrations against school segregation and promoting the opening of restaurants to people of all races. He is also seen working to convince congress to pass fair housing laws. The program ends as Dr. King gives his ₃I Have a Dream₄ speech and as he receives the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize."--Distributor's website (
