Broaklyn Film & Theater Company invites you to join us on the 50th Anniversary of the March On Washington as part of our Pathways2Justice Initiative (P2J) which was spurred by a community desire and need to creatively assess human, civic, and social rights in our local and larger society.
This limited viewing of the three hour remastered version of the 1970 Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary follows Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from 1955 to 1968, in his rise from regional activist to world-renowned leader of the Civil Rights movement. P2J will continue to convene community members to learn, teach, deconstruct and disrupt the systems that have paved the current path of dis-ease and will work together to lay the path for a just and sustainable neighborhood and world.
Produced for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Foundation by Ely Landau, King is an epic document of the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr., from the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott to his assassination in 1968. Rare footage of King's speeches, protests, and arrests are interspersed with scenes of other high-profile supporters and opponents of the cause, punctuated by heartfelt testimonials by some of Hollywood's biggest stars.
There is no voice-over narration; instead, the film uses contemporary film/newsreel and video/television footage to brilliantly convey the boiling indignation of an oppressed people and their revolutionary organizing. Juxtaposed over this footage are dramatic readings by actors Harry Belafonte, Ruby Dee, Ben Gazzara, Charlton Heston, James Earl Jones, Burt Lancaster, Paul Newman, Anthony Quinn, Clarence Williams III and Joanne Woodward.
