Description


2019 Hope and Fury National Documentary Screening, 12:00 PM, Philander Smith College, M.L. Harris Auditorium

The Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission in partnership with NBCUniversal and Comcast, will host a national screening in Arkansas of the highly acclaimed documentary that chronicles the media’s impact on the Civil Rights movement. "Hope & Fury: MLK, The Movement and The Media" is a gripping account of American history told like never before by an all-star lineup of civil rights leaders, pioneering African-American reporters who chronicled the movement as well as journalists from across generations. The film offers a fresh look at the historic civil rights movement and combines first-hand personal recollections with rare, archival footage and photographs - some of which will be shown to audiences for the first time.

From the murder of Emmett Till, Little Rock and Selma to modern-day events in Charlottesville and Ferguson, the film navigates the struggles of the civil rights movement in the 1960s and draws a straight line to a new generation of activists. The documentary shows how protesters using social media today employ the same strategies as Dr. King and movement leaders when stark images of brutality moved a nation and made history. The film is narrated by Lester Holt, anchor of "NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt."
