Soundtrack for a Revolution -- A fresh and exhilarating take on one of the most important social movements in American history, SOUNDTRACK FOR A REVOLUTION explores the civil rights struggle through the powerful and stirring songs that inspired a generation. In this deeply moving documentary, legends of the fight for equal rights such as Congressman John Lewis, Julian Bond, Ambassador Andrew Young and Martin Luther King Jr.'s widow, Coretta Scott King, testify to the indispensable role that songs of rebellion and hope played in helping activists fight against brutality and injustice. In riveting studio performances, top contemporary artists including John Legend, Wyclef Jean, The Roots and Joss Stone reinvigorate and reinvent timeless songs like 'We Shall Overcome' and 'Wade in the Water.'
Betty and Coretta -- Mary J. Blige and Angela Bassett star in this Lifetime Original Movie that tells the dual real-life stories of Coretta Scott King (Bassett) and Dr. Betty Shabazz (Blige), wives of Dr. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, respectively, as they carry on as single mothers after their husbands' tragic assassinations.
With the 1960 presidential election just days away, Democratic candidate John F. Kennedy made a telephone call that some historians say earned him an unprecendented amount of African-American support in the polls. Kennedy called Coretta Scott King, wife of the famed civil rights leader who had just been arrested for violating probation. Kennedy offered Coretta his support and provided encouraging words. King was released from jail a day later. This exclusive clip from PBS' upcoming JFK special provides context for that important phone call.
Coretta Scott King (Angela Bassett) confides in Betty Shabazz (Mary J. Blige) about how she found out her husband, Martin Luther King Jr., was not faithful to their marriage, in this scene from the Lifetime movie Betty & Coretta.
