Plot Synopsis:

Academy Award Nominee Paul Winfield (Sounder) embodies fallen civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. and Academy Award Nominee Cicely Tyson (The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman) lends her enumerable talents as Coretta Scott King in director Abby Mann’s (Judgment at Nuremberg screenwriter) television mini-series 'King: The Martin Luther King Story.' Tracing the story of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s rise from his early years as a Baptist minister in Memphis to his assassination in 1968, is riveting storytelling of the highest order, combining first-rate performances with spiritual, political and social themes that remain as relevant today as they were in the era portrayed in the film. Supporting performances include Ossie Davis (Do The Right Thing) as Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr., Roscoe Lee Browne (The Cowboys) and Grammy and Emmy Award Winning singer Tony Bennett portraying himself.
