    King- The Miniseries is a television miniseries based on the life of civil rights leader and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that aired for three nights in a row on NBC in February of 1978. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (portrayed by Paul Winfield) was a Baptist minister who began working towards the African American civil rights movement early on. He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott, and delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech at the March on Washington in 1963. He raised public consciousness of the issues at hand and earned a reputation as a talented orator. In 1964, he was recognized for his contribution to ending discrimination and racial segregation through non-violent means with a Nobel Peace Prize. Beyond African American rights, King was also focused on human rights in general, and made efforts towards ending poverty and the civil rights war. He was assassinated in 1968 at the age of 39. In the miniseries, his wife, Cicely Tyson plays Coretta Scott King, and it also features Roscoe Lee Browne, Tony Bennett, Lonny Chapman, and Ossie Davis among others.moreless
