Bounce TV marks 50th anniversary of March on Washington with King documentary

(August 25, 2013) In honor of the 50th anniversary of The March on Washington on August 28, Bounce TV will present the exclusive television premiere of the acclaimed documentary King: Montgomery To Memphis at 7:00 PM ET.

Conceived and produced by Ely Landau, and directed by the legendary Sidney Lumet and Joseph L. Mankiewicz, this rarely-seen 1970 film features historical footage of the event, with guest appearances by Sidney Poitier, Diahann Carroll, Bill Cosby, James Earl Jones, Ruby Dee, Harry Belafonte, Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, Charlton Heston and other ardent supporters and friends of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. many of whom marched alongside him.

Throughout the evening, Bounce TV will also premiere a series of new interviews with Dr. King's eldest son Martin Luther King III, Civil Rights icon Congressman John Lewis, longtime King friend and associate Ambassador Andrew Young, music superstar Usher Raymond along with Grammy-nominated actor-singer-songwriter Tyrese. Each of these influential African Americans will reflect on the importance of the March, that period in our Nation's history and its relevance in today's racial climate. Both Mr. King III and Ambassador Young are among the Bounce TV Founding Group and Board of Directors.

"We feel a great responsibility to recognize the anniversary of this major event in the history of Civil Rights in our country," commented Bounce TV Executive Vice President of Programming and Production Billy Hall. "To have Mr. King III and Ambassador Young actively involved with Bounce TV is such a rare and powerful opportunity and reminds us all of Bounce TV's growing and visible position within the African American community."
