WASHINGTON, January 20, 2015 — Today is a day to pause and reflect on what Rev. Martin Luther King would think of his legacy and his struggles were he alive today, and to ask whether his dream is still alive in 2015.
The celebrations held in his honor throughout the nation have been tarnished by months of almost endless race baiting.
Consider the contentious, often hateful comments hurled by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and even public officials like U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder after the death of Trayvon Martin. That was followed by riots and violent protests in Ferguson, Mo., after the death of Michael Brown. In both cases, the young men who died had their characters scrubbed to spotless innocence and were made into modern day martyrs.
Join Lonnie Poindexter, national civil rights leader and celebrated host of the Freedom’s Journal Radio Show along with Darla Sutton Dawald, noted Tea Party leader and head of One Nation Rising, as we discuss the impact and effect of race baiting in America and how Rev. Martin Luther’s King’s legacy and dream can be recaptured.
Later in the hour the guests will tackle just where in the world the traditional family hour in American homes has gone. Has the disappearance of the shared dinner table had a damaging impact in families and in America? Who or what is at fault and has its absence destroyed the fabric of home life and traditional values? Are Hollywood, Gangster Rap music and violent video games part of the problem?
