This documentary traces many of the places, communities, events as well as people impacted by Martin Luther King, Jr. The faithful who make up this five day 1500 mile bus trip are taken to his earliest roots in the civil rights movement in Montgomery, across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, the site of Bloody Sunday. They also experience the sense of loss and heartfelt pain at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham where four young girls lost their lives during a Sunday morning bombing. Our story begins and end at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis – now the National Civil Rights Museum – during the 40th anniversary of the King assassination.
