Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Economic Autonomy, Racial Injustice and War and the Need to Move Beyond the Dream.

Today's Talk Radio is pre-empted for a special for Martin Luther King Jr. Day produced by Jamilah Bourdon

"as we approach the official celebration of martin luther king jr.'s life, we spend another year of reflection on what the dream he spoke of means to us.  in the midst of this conversation, we tend to neglect his observations on the injustices of war and economic equalities- issues which still resonate to this day. 

join us as we feature portions of dr. king's speeches regarding economic autonomy, the connections between racial injustice and war; and the need to move beyond a dream into a reality."
