King: Man of Peace in a Time of War is a documentary film about the civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. The centerpiece of the film is rare footage of King's 1967 interview on "The Mike Douglas Show" where King speaks with host Mike Douglas and singer Tony Martin about his civil rights work, and opposes the Vietnam War and black participation in the military conflict. Since his death in 1968, the civil rights movement has continued to promote equality among races and non-violent resistance to oppression around the world. This documentary features contemporaries of King, such as Reverend Jesse Jackson, and modern-day African-Americans including Colin Powell and Quincy Jones. Martin Luther King's legacy is felt in the lives of all these people through their work and accomplishments. This combination of interviews with prominent African-Americans and intimate footage of the man himself makes this tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. a meaningful look into the life and advocacy of an American hero.moreless
