January 17, 2011 – Hour 1

Today we are commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with a discussion about the violence that continues to pervade US society, despite the powerful legacy of non-violence left behind by King and the rest of the civil rights movement.  We’re joined by civil rights lawyer Sherrilyn Ifill and literary activist Ethelbert Miller.
