"King documents the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his non-violent campaign for racial equality and justice from 1955-1968. Nothing is contrived and there is no narration, only the stirring words of Dr. King's memorable sermons and speeches. The film is history, unvarnished and unretouched, as recorded by newsreel and television camera of the period ... The live action sequences are linked by a series of short dramatic readings"--Container
