Here's a supplement to an earlier blog entry, Teaching About Dr. Martin Luther King.

On Monday, January 18, 2010, The History Channel broadcasts an unforgettable two hour documentary on the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.. The program airs 4pm-6pm.

According to the History Channel, the event brings to life the epic story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for a new generation of viewers. With veteran journalist Tom Brokaw, this program commemorates the life and legacy of Dr. King. This special presentation traces his remarkable journey for civil rights: from his key role in helping organize the bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955, through his rise as a world figure, to his tragic assassination in Memphis in 1968. Conversations with his close confidants including Andrew Young, John Lewis, and Harry Belafonte, together with rare interviews with family members provide rich insights into his life and work.
