Tonight on the show:
On Saturday, August 28 — the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic March on Washington — Americans across the country will march at March On for Voting Rights. RadioACTive got a preview from Martin Luther King III and Arndrea Waters King of the Drum Major Institute, which carries the work of Dr. King into the 21st century.
A sister march is planned in SLC. RadioACTive spoke with Utah Activist Darlene McDonald — from the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama — for details.
Interested in reading up on critical race theory? Garfield recommended Critical Race Theory: An Introduction by Jean Stefancic and Richard Delgado.
