Our Friend Martin is a story of 2 friends who travel through time and learn about the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  It is an animated story that is mixed with actual film footage from the life of Dr. King and the Civil Rights movement.  My kids really enjoyed it and I think I need to buy it to add to our DVD collection.
