'The Boy King': Early Encounters With Prejudice

The life of Martin Luther King Jr. has been the subject of a number of films.

The made-for-television film, “The Boy King,” tells the story of his youth. The WSB-TV movie focuses on  early prejudices King encountered in his childhood and how his family responded.

"The Boy King" won a Peabody Award in 1986. We sat down with the producer of the movie, Judy Cairo, and director Bill Parrott to talk about the making of the film.
