Panel Discusses Issues Raised In PBS Documentary 'Black America Since Martin Luther King Jr.'

Nov 10, 2016

The new PBS documentary "Black America Since MLK: And Still I Rise," explores the many twists and turns of the civil rights movement over the last 50 years. The four-part series airs November 15 and 22 at 8 p.m. on PBS.

The documentary ends with the current struggles highlighted by the Black Lives Matter movement. To talk about those issues, Georgia Public Broadcasting hosted a panel discussion with three experts and leaders in the African-American community in Atlanta. 

"On Second Thought" host Celeste Headlee is joined by Mary Hooks, Co-Director of Southerners on New Ground and a local leader of the Black Lives Matter movement; Maurice Hobson, Assistant Professor of African-American studies at Georgia State University; and David Wall Rice, Associate Professor and Chair of Psychology at Morehouse College.
