I had to take off all comments because sadly racism is still alive and I was getting nasty comments... My friend and I were nominated by our student office to do this video for our Martin Luther King assembly. Everyone in the video (except martin luther king of course) goes to our school, the singers, the actors, the guitarist and everyone else who helped.

Rare footage and photographs illustrate the defining moments of his crusade, from the first stirrings of his activism in Alabama to his time as the pre-eminent voice for racial justice in America. Originally made for the BBC series "Reputations." documentary profiles examining well-known personalities around the world, the film is a revealing portrait of the private life and inner struggles of Martin Luther King Jr. Champion of non-violent protest ...
