Rabbi Ben Kamin is joining Bill today on KOKS Radio to talk about your kids and their civil rights. From the Emancipation Proclamation to the assassination of Martin Luther King, the civil rights movement has traveled some rough roads. 

Despite the fact that countless white Americans across the nation supported these difficult changes, many Americans of color feel that it is their movement and that the great work of Dr. King was for and by black America.

The reality is that for civil rights issues to become a movement, it took a concerted effort by much more than just black America.
Ironically, the same ignorance that drove racism has no color boundaries, and continues to thwart the progress of the civil rights movement.

Rabbi Ben Kamin, a renowned expert on Martin Luther King, brings insight and real humanity to understanding of the struggles of King, the politics which threatened to stop the movement in its tracks, and what Dr. King might think of where we are really at with civil rights today.

About Rabbi Ben Kamin:

With the rise in political position and media exposure of Americans of color, the idea that a white Jewish scholar would be a recognized expert is perhaps what the civil rights movement was all about.

Ben Kamin is a respected scholar on revered civil rights leader Martin Luther King and the author of three books on the issues, the backstories, and the man.

In 2004, Kamin created Reconciliation: The Synagogue Without Walls, an independent agency that services interfaith situations.
