Your Call: Your Call: How far have civil rights come since the death of Martin Luther King Jr.?

Dec 23, 2014

 On the December 24th, 2014 edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Tavis Smiley, author of “Death of a King: The Real Story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s Final Year”. In his last year King was campaigning against many of the same issues we still face today: poverty, racism, and wars overseas. So what is the true legacy of the famous civil rights leader and how is it making an impact today? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
