Peter Jennings Reporting

Placing Martin Luther King Jr.'s eloquence in the context of civil rights history, this documentary marks the 40th anniversary of the March on Washington by recapturing the drama of an event that brought the quest for racial justice to the forefront of America's consciousness. Narrator Peter Jennings examines the "I Have a Dream" speech in detail, showing how a carefully crafted address turned into a "Baptist sermon" as King drew inspiration from the crowd. And movement veterans such as Ossie Davis and Harry Belafonte contribute vivid memories. BOTTOM LINE: Join the march.
