King (1978) was a three episode NBC miniseries following the life of Martin Luther King, from his days beginning as a minister until his assassination in Memphis in 1968. Starring Paul Winfield as Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Cicely Tyson as Coretta Scott King and Ossie Davis as Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. Stage, screen and television actor PAUL WINFIELD (1941-2004) was nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award (Sounder, 1972) and two Emmy Awards (for the 1978 mini-series, King, based on the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Roots: The Next Generation, 1979), and he won the 1995 Emmy for his role as Judge Harold Nance on Picket Fences. Trained for the stage, Winfield got his big break playing Paul Cameron on the ground-breaking TV series, Julia (1968-1971). After making his film debut in 1969 (The Lost Man), Winfield starred in a long list of feature films, including Huckleberry Finn (1974), Twilight's Last Gleaming (1977), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), The Terminator (1984), Presumed Innocent (1990), Dennis the Menace (1993) and Mars Attacks! (1996). He was just as prolific on the small screen, appearing in dozens of made-for-TV movies, miniseries and documentaries, and Winfield appeared as a guest star in series ranging from Perry Mason (1965) to Touched By An Angel (2003). He was also a regular on several TV series, including The Charmings (1987, voice of the Magic Mirror), Wiseguy (1989) and 227 (1989-1990). CICELY THOMAS (b. 1933) is an award winning actress, amassing an amazing 30 plus wins for her work on both stage and film. She began her career as a model, being a successful face for Ebony magazine, but eventually transitioning into the acting world. He first credited role was in a special broadcast on NBC called Frontiers of Faith (1951), though the role was small, and by far no indication of her future success. She would work through minor roles on Broadway and television, appearing in the original cast of the off Broadway play The Blacks (1961), alongside other prolific black figures and actors, including Maya Angelou, James Earl Jones, Roscoe Lee Brown, and Charles Gordone. However, she wouldn't truly be noticed by the public eye until her role in the critically acclaimed film Sounder (1974), receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. Since then, she has won awards for countless performances, including two Emmys, several Image Awards, one SAG award, two Drama Desk Awards, and most recently, a Tony award for her role in the 2013 play The Trip is Bountiful. A truly historic actress, she continues to appear in many films and stage works, and shows no signs of slowing down. Multitalented actor/director/screenwriter/historian OSSIE DAVIS (1917-2005) married singer/actress Ruby Dee in 1948, two years after they met when he made his Broadway debut in Jeb Turner. Over the years, the couple has appeared together on Broadway (A Raisin in the Sun), screen (debuting in No Way Out in 1950) and television (from Roots: The Next Generation to the PBS series With Ossie & Ruby). They have also been active in social causes, including Black voting rights and the fight against sickle cell anemia. In 1963, Davis and Dee participated in Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s March on Washington, and Davis gave the eulogies at the funerals of Malcolm X in 1965 and Dr. King in 1969. Fine condition.
