Monday, January 17, 2011

WNYC celebrates the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

  • A Beautiful Symphony of Brotherhood explores the rich musical landscape of MLK Jr.'s life and times and offers insight into the importance of music in his life and work.
    Airs Sunday at 9PM and Monday at 3PM on 93.9 FM
  • King’s Last March - Although it was one of the most challenging and controversial chapters of his career, the final year of King's life has not been the focus of significant public attention. This dramatic and illuminating documentary uses a rich mix of archival tape, oral histories and contemporary interviews to paint a vivid picture of what may have been the most difficult year of Dr. King's life.
    Airs Monday at 9PM on 93.9 FM
  • The Promised Land – Host Majora Carter explores Dr. King’s legacy and gauges the reach of his influence today as she talks with artists, activists and others who have been influenced by his message.
    Airs Monday at 9PM on AM 820
