Guest: Michael Honey, PhD, Fred and Dorothy Haley Professor of Humanities, University of Washington Tacoma, Author of "To the Promised Land: Martin Luther King and the Fight for Economic Justice" On this national holiday honoring Dr. King, we remember his civil rights legacy and iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.
