Host Majora Carter takes a fresh look at the reach of King's influence. Some of the most interesting voices in civil rights today weigh in and help us gauge how far we've come. Meet a minister who suggests that King's legacy holds no meaning for today's children, and author and activist Dr. Vincent Harding, who recalls his association with Dr. King. Find out how King's dream has expanded beyond the black community through the work of Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers union, and Judy Bonds, a rural white woman fighting mountaintop mining.
