Synopsis

This engrossing documentary uses original recordings, archive footage, and talking-head interviews to look back at the life of Martin Luther King Jr., and his role within the Civil Rights Movement in the US. Taking in seminal events such as the Montgomery Bus Boycotts, the March on Washington, and the Selma Movement, as well as his assassination at the age of just 39, the documentary provides a remarkable insight into the man himself, the significance of his religious faith, and his extraordinary legacy. Together with analysis of what made King such a compelling leader, I Am MLK Jr. also highlights the ongoing systemic racism that continues to stain modern society.

Content warning: please be advised that this documentary contains some racist language and disturbing images.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
