In this hour long documentary, we explored how Martin Luther King Jr.'s love of music helped shape him as a man, activist and pastor. Martin Luther King, Jr. grew up listening to and singing church songs, and saw gospel and folk music as natural tools to further the civil rights movement. In this hour-long special from WNYC, host Terrance McKnight interweaves musical examples with Dr. King's own speeches and sermons to illustrate the powerful place that music held in his work--and examines how the musical community responded to and participated in Dr. King's cause.

As producer, I researched, wrote and edited the script, directed host Terrance McKnight, and mixed, edited and designed the sound for the final spot.
