Beyond the Classroom presents "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: A Historical Perspective"

What lessons can we learn from the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in understanding social justice in the world today? Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was one of the most loved, respected and feared leaders in American history. He was the conscience of the struggle for civil rights and one of its many heroic martyrs. "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: A Historical Perspective" (2002, Xenon Pictures) offers a one-of-a-kind examination of Dr. King's extraordinary life. Using rare and largely unseen film footage and photographs, writer and director Tom Friedman explores how Dr. King's ideas, beliefs, and methods evolved in the face of the rapidly changing climate of the Civil Rights Movement. To study Dr. King's compelling and magnificent life is to understand that social change and enlightenment are brought about by the overwhelming force of the human spirit. {Will appear in FYI on Jan 22, 2008
