Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2016
On the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, Bryan Stevenson of the Equal Justice Initiative emplores us to do more than remember. He says we should look at Dr. King's Birthday as a call to action rather than a time to celebrate. Stevenson joins The Sound of Ideas to discuss the arc of racial injustice, from slavery to today's death penalty, and exhorts black and white Americans to confront our history. Plus, a conversation with Case Western Reserve University's Dr. Marilyn Mobley on Dr. King's legacy in the region.
