King: A Filmed Record… Montgomery to Memphis

January 21 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

free

(USA/1970—directed by Richard Kaplan)

Constructed from a wealth of archival footage, the Oscar® nominated King: A Filmed Record… Montgomery To Memphis is a monumental documentary that follows Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from 1955 to 1968, in his rise from regional activist to world-renowned leader of the Civil Rights movement.

Rare footage of Dr. King’s speeches, protests, and arrests are interspersed with scenes of high-profile supporters and opponents of the cause. Restored to full-length by the Library of Congress, the complete version of King is a cinematic national treasure that gives viewers an appreciation of the personal challenges he endured and the cultural legacy he left behind. Admission is free. (185 min.)

“Perhaps the most important documentary ever made.” -The Philadelphia Bulletin
