LEONARD'S GOSPEL TRIBUTE TO MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would have been 93 years old this year.

“I am cognizant of the interrelatedness of all communities and states,” King wrote in his 1963 Letter from a Birmingham Jail.

“I cannot sit idly by in Atlanta and not be concerned about what happens in Birmingham. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

In celebration of this icon of civil rights, we will play a gospel tribute from the wealth of recordings released in MLK’s lifetime from the golden age of black gospel music in this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI.
