Our Well Read Red, Patricia Kullberg, reads an excerpt from an article by Jenn M. Jackson published January 18, 2021 in Al-Jazeera, entitled Martin Luther King, Jr was Radical: We Must Reclaim That Legacy. In the piece Jackson argues that too much of what white America celebrates in the history of the most well-known civil right leader is revisionist and obscures the way his politics evolved over time into a radical vision of a society that protects and serves the humanity of all. This piece was researched and edited by Sharon Grant.
