The long struggle for civil rights in Kansas City
How is the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. living on in Kansas City? We hear from two Kansas City activists about their experiences living through the Civil Rights Movement and how they think the country and this city are doing in the long struggle for justice.
Despite considerable progress made since the lifetime of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the fight for civil rights and racial equity is far from finished. KCUR's Brian Ellison spoke on Up To Date with folk singer Danny Cox and civil rights activist Al Brooks about MLK's legacy and the current landscape of social justice.
