We’re joined by Charles Johnson, author of books including The Middle Passage and Dreamer, and winner of the National Book Award and a MacArthur Fellowship.  As the memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is unveiled in Washington DC this week, we reflect on the life of Dr. King and his relevance today.
