Directed by Richard Kaplan


Legacy of a Dream is a 24 minute film that uses selected footage from the 180 minute Academy Award nominated documentary King: A Filmed Record; Montgomery to Memphis to present a shorter account of Dr. King's non-violent campaign for civil rights and social justice. It uses only original newsreel and other primary material, unvarnished and unretouched, and covers the period from the Montgomery bus boycott of 1955 through his assassination in 1968. This film has a powerful narration spoken by James Earl Jones and provides an excellent overview of the struggle for civil rights and "the right to protest for right."

Ideal for acquainting a new generation with the man behind the dream of equality for all, the film is being offered DVD purchase from Kino Lorber and Richard Kaplan.

We thank the Carnegie Corporation, the Puffin Foundation and Richard Kaplan for their support.
