Martin Luther King Jr. emphasized nonviolent protests during the Civil Rights era. On MLK Day, Columbia University journalism professor and New Yorker staff writer Jelani Cobb joins us to talk about how Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street and other groups are following Dr. King’s model. He’s in Dallas to deliver the keynote address at tonight’s Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture MLK Symposium.
