In December of 1965, Martin Luther King Jr. opened his home for the first and only time to a television host, Arnold Michaelis, the legendary interviewer, who spent four days recording Dr. King and his wife Coretta in a uniquely intimate setting, revealing these historic figures' most private thoughts.
This program has never been televised, and had remained unseen in the Michaelis Library of Living History, University of Georgia Libraries, for over forty years. George Silano, the veteran director/cameraman, and the only living member of the team, has rediscovered the film. Mr. Silano will screen the film, and participate in a Q&A following the screening.
This screening is free and open to the public, and tickets are not required. Seats will be availalbe on a first-come, first-served basis.
