KNX InDepth MLK Day special

KNX In Depth
Friday, January 18th
Welcome to KNX In Depth, a special Martin Luther King Day edition podcast—

Dr. King’s mission was to close the gaping inequalities in this country when it came to race and economics. In 2019, 51 years after he was assassinated, in many ways Dr. King’s dream of equality is further out of reach than when he was alive. With racial tensions high and the wealth gap in the United States as big as it’s ever been, Dr. King’s dream is still, very much, an incomplete picture.

We are going to spend some time with two people who are striving to ease those racial and economic tensions with hard work on the ground, in the places where inequality is at its worst.

Joining us on the In Depth podcast are DeRay McKesson, he’s an activist, community organizer, host of the podcast “Pod Save the People,” author of the book “On the Other Side of Freedom: The Case for Hope”…….
And Jacquelyn Dupont-Walker, she’s founding president of the Ward Economic Development Corporation in Los Angeles, which has built, remodeled & managed low income housing in L.A.; and she sits on the board L.A. County METRO.
