Join us for a virtual screening of "Legacy of Love" and live Q&A with filmmaker Roberto Mighty. “Legacy of Love”, a 2020 documentary film by Roberto Mighty, hosted by EMMY- award winning newscaster Reverend Liz Walker, is about how Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott met in 1952, fell in love, dreamed a new world together, and resolved to dedicate their union to the civil rights movement. No matter what the cost. The film was funded by King Boston and The Boston Foundation. The film ends with brief commentaries by Boston-area religious and community leaders, representing Christian, Jewish and Moslem houses of worship; and political/community leaders who are Asian-American (Michelle Wu!), African-American, Latin-American and majority. The WGBH-TV public television premier was in August 2020. Since then, Producer Roberto Mighty and the film have been requested by college, school, library and community groups across the USA. In 2021, the National Educational Telecommunications Association announced they will make "Legacy of Love" available to public television stations around the country.

Registration has closed.
