Review:

Much of this PBS documentary was filmed on the first federal holiday to honor Martin Luther King Jr., when a number of his former associates as well as notable admirers gathered in Atlanta to commemorate his life. The interviews with former President Jimmy Carter, Congressman John Lewis, Bill Cosby, Jesse Jackson, Dick Gregory, Joan Baez, and Bishop Desmond Tutu are moving, but they are no match for the oratory of Dr. King himself. Thankfully, In Remembrance of Martin also makes use of a great amount of archival material, which includes news footage of Dr. King in the years when he was rising to the forefront of the civil rights movement. Dr. King is seen being fingerprinted after his arrest during the Montgomery bus boycott, making his famous "I Have a Dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963, and accepting the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. In addition to being a tribute to Dr. King and his legacy, the inclusion of news films of Klan rallies and violent scenes of police using fire hoses and clubs on peaceful demonstrators makes this video an introduction to the drama and passion of the entire civil rights movement. --Robert J. McNamara
