What Is The Future Of The Civil Rights Movement?

Apr 4, 2018

Wednesday, April 4, 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis, Tennessee.

So, in the last 50 years, how has the civil rights movement evolved, and where is it headed?

GPB's "Morning Edition" host Leah Fleming spoke with a group of activists about today's civil right culture. We heard from the Rev. Gerald Durley, senior pastor emeritus of Providence Missionary Baptist Church, Amanda Hollowell, a community organizer in Savannah, Avery Jackson, an organizer for "ATL Is Ready," and Devyn Springer, a community organizer in Atlanta.
