Taking stylistic cues from narrative filmmaking, this documentary reveals the romantic relationship between Coretta Scott and Martin Luther King, Jr. when they met as college students; where they came from, where they went and what they were doing; and their dreams for a life of activism and family. From the beginning, they were committed to making the country a better place. In the end, they made the world a better place. The film shows that history and makes it relevant to today’s audiences - utilizing living witnesses, interactive storytelling and graphic animation.
Legacy of Love uses historical dramatizations with actors, authentic period wardrobe and props; 4K cinematography; rare historic archival footage and images of the Kings in their early years; and interviews with people who knew the Kings in the early 1950’s and have never been interviewed before for a film of this scope.
