Black History Month: MLK Special

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

In honor of Black History Month, a repeat of the MLK Day special: three separate discussions focused on politics; arts and entertainment; and living in a "post-racial society." The expert panelists focus on issues such as what the reelection of President Obama signifies in terms of the country's racial tolerance; the state of the African-American population in terms of demographics and jobs in Southern California; and the current status of African Americans in the entertainment industry. Guests include Joe Hicks, vice president of Community Advocates; Los Angeles Times contributing editor Erin Aubry Kaplan; author and screenwriter John Ridley; Charmaine Jefferson, executive director of the California African American Museum; Prof. Frank Gillian, dean of UCLA's Luskin School of Public Policy; and Fernando Guerra, director of the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Center for the Study of Los Angeles.
