Episode 331: MLK and the Music of Civil Rights

Fifty years after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. died for holding the simple belief that ALL people were equal, regardless of religion, race or creed, racism still plagues the human condition. On our latest episode we’re taking time to honor his legacy, exploring the music that surrounded, shaped, and carries forward, his mission of equality for all, regardless of race or creed.

Special guest Timothy Anne Burnside (NMAAHC) joins Kevin, Eduardo, and Marcus K. Dowling in the basement for a deep journey through some of the songs of freedom, righteousness, and truth that the Civil Rights Movement was built on, and continues to fight through to this day.
