Apr 5, 2018

Music and art was part of the MLK50 commemoration.

The week-long events surrounding the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s death drew everyone from politicians, activists, labor leaders and tourists to Memphis. There were as many reasons to participate as there were causes to rally behind. In this segment reflecting on MLK50 events, WKNO reporters Sydney Matzko and Sierra Guardiola discuss the commemorative aspects of the observance, and how history has been used as an example for future activism.
