INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY JOINS THE KENNEDY FAMILY AND CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT LEGENDS ON A MARCH TO JUSTICE

- ID FILMS: MARCH TO JUSTICE Premieres on Monday, February 25 at 8PM (E/P) in Commemoration of Black History Month -

(Pasadena, CA) - "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." Nearly fifty years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. proclaimed these words as he called for racial equality after completing the historic voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery in Alabama. But the question still remains today: has the United States of America made true progress in becoming a society in which all people are treated as equals? Reflecting on our nation's ongoing pursuit of equal rights, Investigation Discovery presents ID FILMS: MARCH TO JUSTICE produced exclusively for ID by NBC News' Peacock Productions. With unprecedented access to a civil rights pilgrimage attended by champions of the movement and three generations of the Kennedy family, MARCH TO JUSTICE premieres exclusively on Investigation Discovery on Monday, February 25 at 8 PM (E/P).

ID FILMS: MARCH TO JUSTICE features riveting first person recollections from Civil Rights movement luminaries, including Georgia Congressman John Lewis, who participated in the original Freedom Rides and was the youngest speaker at the March on Washington when Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. Aboard a bus winding its way through Alabama, Rep. Lewis guides Kerry Kennedy, daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, her mother Ethel, and the youngest generations of Kennedy children through a turning point in our nation's history by providing an intimate account of his experience during the brutal Bloody Sunday attack and the Selma to Montgomery march that led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

"Created by some of the top filmmakers in the country, the documentaries featured in ID FILMS are, by their very nature, intensely personal," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager, Investigation Discovery. "We are honored that the Kennedy family invited our film crews to come along the family's intimate journey to understand the threats and abuse so many suffered, just 50 years ago, so that so many more could live in a more fair and just society."

MARCH TO JUSTICE also features interviews with intimate revelations by Carolyn McKinstry, a survivor of the 1963 bombing at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, AL, which killed four young girls; former assistant to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy and First Amendment crusader, John Seigenthaler; and equal rights advocate Ruby Bridges, who at 6 years old was the first African American child to integrate the all-white William Frantz elementary school in New Orleans, Louisiana and was forever immortalized in an iconic Normal Rockwell painting that was recently displayed outside President Obama's Oval Office.

MARCH TO JUSTICE is part of the ID FILMS strand, the television home for projects that shine a light on important, overlooked aspects of our justice system and showcase compelling stories of mystery, intrigue and determination.

ID FILMS: MARCH TO JUSTICE premieres on Monday, February 25 at 8 PM (E/P). The film is produced for Investigation Discovery by NBC News' Peacock Productions, with executive producer Elizabeth Fischer and producer Kimberley Ferdinando. For Investigation Discovery, Diana Sperrazza is executive producer. Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
