I just tried to obtain the movie - King: A Filmed Record.... from Montgomery to Memphis" on Netlix which was discussed on your program this afternoon. The response from Netflix was that this movie could not be streamed.

Can you provide any other sources where this movie can be found?

What a great Christian. If one asked MLK who he was, he would say 'I am a Christian minister, and I act in the power of Christ'. And people love what they see in him.
