What to Watch: KCET Commemorates Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Join KCET on Monday, January 16 to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We will be broadcasting two special programs that explore the legacy of the civil rights leader through the development of his national memorial, and the construction of the African American Museum in Washington, D.C.
See program information below.
"Building the Dream" offers unique insight into the challenges faced in the 27-year effort to create a national memorial to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. The program shows the origins of a bold idea for the Memorial at a small, informal gathering of King’s Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity brothers in 1983. The fraternity took up the cause, eventually creating the MLK Memorial Foundation to broaden the effort and integrate corporate and private partners. The film follows the project through fundraising, design, bureaucratic hurdles, and groundbreaking, and shows the stones arriving on site and being moved into place. Watch as the nation celebrates the public opening of the Memorial with a gala dedication ceremony.
This special captures the details, ingenuity, and the history surrounding the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. Viewers will learn more about what went into creating the space that some are calling a gift to the country and a dream come true.
