In Honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. - 1/17

Dominique Haller

In today's show, we pay homage to the courageous citizenship that emerged among followers of the Civil Rights Movement. We talk to Professor Danielle Allen and Cathy Cohen. Professor Allen is widely known for her work on citizenship in both ancient Athens and modern America. Cathy Cohen's research focuses on the political participation of young people, particularly black youth.
