In honor of Martin Luther King's birthday, PBS' Wonderworks presentation of January 14, 1985 was And the Children Shall Lead. Set in Mississippi in 1964, the 60-minute drama recreates the black voter registration drive of that year. The events are seen through the eyes of a young black girl, played by Pam Polito. Danny Glover and Denise Nicholas co-star as Polito's parents, who are encouraged to participate in local civil rights activities when the Freedom Riders come to town. Andrew Prine plays the requisite redneck white sheriff. Following the original telecast of And the Children Shall Lead, PBS offered a similarly themed adult drama, Go Tell it on the Mountain.
