Marting Luther King Jr. Day

Several years ago I watched the entire Eyes on the Prize PBS documentary and it opened my eyes in many ways to the struggles that African Americans specifically, and minorities in general, have faced throughout the history of the United States. I believe the entire series consists of 10-12 two hour programs that document the civil rights movement. While watching this set of documentaries there was one person who came to the forefront as a true leader and prophetic voice to the United States. That person was Martin Luther King. I am posting the first part of the documentary that focused on MLK, if you like what you see it appears that the rest of this program has been posted to YouTube.
