Civil Rights the Focus of Lehigh Valley Discourse

With the national holiday celebrating the life of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., just days away, Alan Jennings will turn the attention of listeners to the civil rights movement.  Sheila Michaels, a veteran of the civil rights movement who worked for SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) and CORE (Congress for Racial Equality) in the early 1960's, knew and worked with some of the top leaders of the movement and has been featured among the movement's leaders in social history archives kept by various universities. Also joining Alan on the show will be Kevin Easterling, Executive Director of the Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King Memorial Project of the Lehigh Valley. (Original air date: January 10, 2013.)
