50 years after the March on Washington, historians are still defining the legacy of the civil rights movement, and of Dr. Martin Luther King. Syndicated columnist Reverend Byron Williams makes the case that 1963 was the pivotal year for American culture, but has been overlooked… until now. On this edition, Williams speaks about his book, 1963: The Year of Hope & Hostility
