Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the great heroes of the civil rights movement. Watch as LeVar Burton reads you a story about Dr. King's life from the Friendship Baptist Church in Pasadena, California. The Story Time video focuses on teaching children about the importance of the acceptance of others, no matter differences in personal, religious, political, or physical dissimilarities.
Not only is this Story Time video tremendously personal and meaningful for LeVar, who in 2000, proudly received a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Album: The Autobiography of Martin Luther King Jr., but the video is embedded with a positive message of the value of human kindness and resiliency that both children and adults can find relatable.
Special thanks to Friendship Baptist Church in Pasadena, CA for allowing us to film in their sanctuary.
