Martin Luther King, Jr.: Life and Legacy

In recognition of Black History Month, February 1985, David Garrow and David Levering Lewis, who are biographers of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., discuss his life and legacy. King’s personal ministry and social activism ended with his assassination in Memphis in 1968, but his influence continues as a vital force in American life.

At the time of this conversation, Lewis, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1983-84), was professor of history at the University of California, San Diego. Garrow was professor pf political science at the City College of New York.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
