First Annual King Day Film Festival

Admission is free. Popcorn will be served.

The festival begins at 11:30 a.m. with The Boy King, a one hour made-for-television film that portrays the childhood and teen years of Dr. King’s life. Especially selected for young audiences, this Peabody-award-winning film humanizes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a telling yet entertaining fashion.

At 1 p.m. The Olando Bagwell documentary Citizen King will be screened. This two hour film places the legend in a balanced historical context and reveals aspects of the man behind the dream.

At 3:30 p.m. the festival will screen the classic, Nothing But A Man, starring Ivan Dixon and Abbey Lincoln. A proud black man and his school-teacher wife face discriminatory challenges in 1960s America. This film is about one and half hours. The film festival will wrap-up around 5 p.m.
