Episode Info:

As the country honors Dr. Martin Luther King, this week’s episode is a history lesson on the Civil Rights Movement through the lens of Mr. Sterling Tucker. Currently, 95 years young, Mr. Tucker began his Urban League career in 1945 and would eventually lead several Urban League affiliates. During his tenure, he became a trusted confidant of Whitney M. Young and was a friend and colleague of Dr. King. Because of his proficiency in organizing massive groups, in 1963 he was named Vice Chairman of the March on Washington. Mr. Tucker’s historical details are a tribute to the past but a reminder of the continuing struggles of the present. He has authored 3 books “For Blacks Only,” “Black Reflections On White Power” and “Beyond the Burning, Life, and Death of the Ghetto.” Hosts for this episode are Donald Cravins, Jr., NUL Senior Vice President of Policy and Toni Wiley, NUL Director of Congressional Advocacy.
