"I have a dream..."

Nominated for nine Emmy Awards, this "astute and compelling" (Variety) biography based on the remarkable life of Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Martin Luther king, Jr., takes an intimate look at one of the world's most public heroes during one of the most tumultuous times in American history. Starring Paul Winfield, Cicely Tyson and Ossie Davis, "King" is a riveting tale that appropriately honors a true legend.

In America during the 1950s and '60s, the civil rights movement found its leader in a Southern Baptist minister. Using lyrical eloquence, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., motivated masses of people - black and white - to demand equality by way of nonviolent protest. But in spite of his peaceful agenda, Dr. King was often the target of terrible violence. He was never swayed from his path, however; for by the time he was assassinated in 1968, Dr. King had already defined a dream that would change a nation forever.
