BET specials celebrate unveiling of the Martin Luther King Memorial  

(August 19, 2011) BET Networks honors the legacy of the civil rights pioneer Martin Luther King, Jr., with a special day of programming on BET and CENTRIC in celebration of the unveiling of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, August 28.

"BET Networks is truly honored to be a partner with the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation and support such an important moment for our country, and especially for African-Americans," said Debra L. Lee, Chairman and CEO of BET Networks. "We are proud to honor his legacy and dedicate an entire day to this on BET and CENTRIC."

"The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Foundation is humbled and honored to have the support and commitment of BET Networks to make sure the Memorial and dedication week reflect the dignity and inspiration of Dr. King's legacy," said Harry E. Johnson Sr., President and CEO of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation, Inc.

BET News will premiere two new compelling half-hour specials during BET's MLK lineup: "Alpha Man: The Brotherhood of MLK" and "Michelle Obama On A Mission: Impact Africa."  "Alpha Man" is a character driven television news special that traces the lineage of King's role in the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. during his time as a young graduate student in divinity school in Boston. It also tells the story of how years later his fraternity brothers beat the odds to help make his National Memorial a reality. Featuring never-before-seen footage and first person accounts of King's life as a 23-year old divinity student in Boston, actor Hill Harper takes viewers through the compelling account of King's iconic rise from a 1952 Alpha pledgee to Nobel Prize-winner and leading civil rights pioneer whose impact is still felt today.

Immediately following is the premiere of "Michelle Obama On A Mission: Impact Africa" at 7:30 p.m.* that captures the First Lady's inspiring international journey to South Africa and Botswana. Told from the point of view of both the First Lady and the communities she visited in Africa, "Michelle Obama On A Mission: Impact Africa." features exclusive up close and personal footage of Mrs. Obama's historic visit as she spreads a message of unity and hope. Seasoned Nigerian-American journalist and former CNN reporter Lola Ogunnaike serves as narrator and on-air correspondent for "Michelle Obama On A Mission: Impact Africa."
