History Channel features 'King'

Show explores civil rights leader's life and legacy

On Sunday evening, I watched a well produced documentary on Martin Luther King Jr. King, hosted by Tom Brokaw, brings to life the historic story of King and displays the leader's remarkable journey for civil rights. It also explores King, the man.

The two-hour special repeats on Monday (January 19) at 10 a.m. EST and 4 p.m. EST. Of course, there's plenty of vintage footage that chronicles King's life. King comes alive, however, in the first-person accounts provided by a number of people who knew King - family members, those who worked with him, and those who supported the civil rights movement. I highly recommend this gripping show.

Also, check out the History Channel on the Web for a wealth of resources on King, including videos. Just visit
