On the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination, Igor speaks with Sam Fulwood III, a veteran journalist and columnist with ThinkProgress who has covered race relations for decades. Fulwood shares the expectations he held as a child believing that racial segregation would be figured out by the time he had grown up; how the memorialization of King often misses his radical economic agenda; the racial progress that has been made in the 50 years since King’s death; and what is still left to be accomplished.
