Win-a-Book Wednesday will be pre-empted this week for Win-a-Video Wednesday, but first things first: The winner of last week's book "Giant" by John Stauffer is Jamaise. Congratulations, Jamaise! E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and your book will be sent via USPS Media Mail.
This week's offering is "King," a documentary about slain civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr.
Forty years after Martin Luther King's assassination, HISTORY, with newsman Tom Brokaw, takes viewers through the extraordinary life and times of America's civil rights visionary. "King" goes beyond the legend to portray the man, the questions, the myths and, most importantly, the relevance of Dr. King's message in today's world. Includes a rare interview with is son, Martin Lither King III, as well as associates from the civil rights campaigns such as Andy Young and Harry Belafonte, and contemporary figues such as former President Bill Clinton, Condoleeza Rice, Bono, Forest Whitaker, Chuck D and others.
Visit The History Channel Web site for clips from the film, including John Legend singing his version of U2's "Pride (In the Name of Love)."
This week, thanks to the generosity of The History Channel, two...count 'em...TWO people will win a brand new copy of this film.
Enter to win this video by participating in this open thread by Monday, Jan. 19. All names attached to this thread will be entered into a random drawing. The winner will be announced next Wednesday and that person can e-mail me with their mailing address. The book will be sent via USPS Media Mail.
The winner of the book is invited to post a review on What Tami Said.
