Critic Reviews for King: A Filmed Record...Montgomery to Memphis

All Critics (2)

A timeless tribute to a selfless martyr who led his people to the Promised Land by holding fast to his fervent faith that their willingness to endure suffering along the way would exceed their enemies' capacity to inflict suffering.

Worth it alone for Nina Simone's haunting rendition of Why (The King of Love Is Dead), heard as Dr. King's mule-drawn casket led over 100,000 silent mourners from Ebenezer Baptist Church on a 3 1/2 walk through the streets of Atlanta.
