Understanding the Legacy of Dr. King
“We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter from a Birmingham Jail
Stephanie Knox Cubbon, our former education director, interviews Dr. Clayborne Carson, professor of history and director of the Martin Luther King Research Institute at Stanford. Dr. Carson answers some crowd-sourced questions about the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.
The audio was recorded on location, in a garden in Palo Alto, CA. You will hear some of the normal sounds that one might while sitting outside, including blue jays, airplanes and a neighbor’s dog.
