MARCH ON! THE DAY MY BROTHER MARTIN CHANGED THE WORLD cover image
Kids really "got" the message. "It was a good story about treating everyone the right way." "If you are interested in knowing more about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., this is a film that will really inform you. I've heard about him but I didn't know that much about him before." "When they talk about equal rights, I thought about the way that people are treated - at school, at the theater, at other places." "The pictures looked like they were from a book. They were ok but they could have been better." "This film definitely made me think about how people are treated and how we should all have the same rights." "Dr. King worked hard and had a lot of good things to share."
The lead story is a wonderful story about partnership and equality. The collection of actual photographs and illustrations makes for an interesting way to view the story. Younger kids may get bored with the still photographs. The story tells about important events in the history of our country. The March in Washington D.C. was based on love and peace. That is what is made clear in this film. It definitely gives viewers things to think about. The background of Martin Luther King Jr. from his sister's point of view is interesting. Most appropriate for kids age eight and older. This is a show that makes us all think about how we treat others. It shows how people in the 60s worked towards equality and peace. The basis of Martin Luther King Jr's speech is still true today. We cannot move forward unless we consider everyone equal. We must have hope and move ahead with our own dreams. We must work together and speak up for what is right.
