Photobucket==It's simply not enough to commemorate the 82nd birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We need to examine the volatile background of the Civil Rights era and how courageous men, women, and children put their lives on the line for social justice. That change soaked in blood brought about sweeping reform in the United States and other parts of the world. Dr. Cheryl Towsend Gilkes, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Professor of Sociology and African American Studies at Colby College (Waterville, Maine) is my special guest today. Later in the hour we'll learn about a new effort to dismantle the Cradle to Prison Pipeline with Barbara Best of the Children's Defense Fund.
