Great overview of Dr. King's last five years (1963-68)
24 January 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This documentary, aired on our local PBS affiliate, was a great account of King as a human being showing some regular journalistic footage but also some home movie-type scenes and stills that are priceless. The eyewitnesses and biographers/historians include some antagonistic folks from Birmingham & FBI-types who still have grudges and "issues" with this landmark American leader. It does give a variety of contemporary colleagues valuable chances to put some of the events of the years into context. I highly recommend this short film and am sharing it with many others myself. Well-deserving of a 10 * rating.
