Guest: Wornie Reed, PhD, Director, Race and Social Policy Research Center, Virginia Tech Fifty years after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr, what lessons does his legacy offer young activists today marching and organizing for issues such as racial equality, police reform, economic opportunity or gun control? Wornie Reed worries the real nature of Dr. King’s work is not well-known today, and certainly not taught in your typical social studies or history class at school. Reed marched alongside Martin Luther King Jr and saw him speak dozens of times.
