Part 3 of 3, First TV Interview of Dr. King

Part 3 of the interview with Martin Luther King, from 1957 on the PBS show, Open Mind. Yes, they called it Open Mind. This show was called "New Negro" and they talked exclusively to Dr. King about how African American's could fit into the world and into the US. Quite interesting and provocative interview.. or grilling almost.

Thanks for these videos, Annette. What a great way to add to the collection of tributes to him that I have seen today.

I enjoyed them so much and thought they were very interesting. Both from an historical perspective and from a social one. To see how we have evolved yet not evolved in our treatment of people is very interesting to say the least.

Wow, wow, wow. These are absolutely fantastic and what a nice change. Somehow I don't think I got to watch them as in east TN. MLK had attended the Highlander Folkschool up the road and people in those parts thought he was a communist, so they didn't cotten to him too much.

I agree Leslie... when I found them last year I was amazed at the quality and the tone of them. To me it was an amazing insight into the mind of Dr. King and the mind of the interviewers too. To see this was just so awe inspiring to me. I love watching them and so had to share them again.

Thanks for visiting and watching them.
