A Beautiful Symphony of Brotherhood: A Musical Journey in the Life of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

ABOUT THE SHOW

Martin Luther King, Jr. grew up listening to and singing church songs, and saw gospel and folk music as natural tools to further the civil rights movement. In this hour-long special from WNYC, host Terrance McKnight interweaves musical examples with Dr. King's own speeches and sermons to illustrate the powerful place that music held in his work--and examines how the musical community responded to and participated in Dr. King's cause.
