Happy New Year, East Bay!
We thought we'd take this opportunity to re-introduce ourselves, and let you know how to pitch us a show in 2018!
AND MORE :)
How does today's Black Lives Matter Movement compare to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s leadership of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s? Can BLM be informed by MLK's legacy?
Tonight at 7pm, KGPC will be airing an interview with Dr. Clarence Jones, an advisor and advocate to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We'll also be talking with Jarrod Sport, who produced the interview.
Dr. Clarence Jones was integral in shaping Dr. King's "I Have A Dream" speech, and Jones is responsible for the "promissory note" metaphor in the speech. According to MLK, "This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
