To kick off Black History Month, 2007, a new film about Martin Luther King Jr., with a remarkable interview unseen for 40 years. This is Dr. King as you haven't seen him before: not behind a podium, not speaking from prepared remarks---but in a pointed conversation on a TV talk show, where his extemporaneous eloquence and conviction bring a startling clarity to his powerful leadership. PLUS: the Smithsonian Folkways collection of Black American freedom songs, and the power of music.
