The Igniting Change Radio Show on Tuesday, January 17th, 2023, entitled “Fighting for Transformative Change: Lessons Learned From the Legacy of Dr. King”, will feature Radio Show Co-Hosts and Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) Co-Leaders Attorneys Barbara Arnwine and Daryl Jones and guests Rev. Dr. Charles Steele, Jr. Jordan Dixon, Mollie Duffy, and Edward Ward. Our show will focus on the lessons learned from the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ‘s philosophy and work. We will feature a major interview with Rev. Dr. Charles Steele, Jr., who is currently the CEO of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), which was Dr. King’s leadership organization. In addition, during the latter part of the show we will discuss the meaning and relevancy of Dr. King’s legacy with TJC Gen Z Fellows Jordan Dixon; Mollie Duffy; and, Edward Ward.
January 16th “marked the 28th anniversary of the national day of service [of Martin Luther King Jr. Day]. This day was established to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King, and to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities…Americans celebrated the first official Martin Luther King Day, which is the only federal holiday commemorating an African-American, on Monday, January 20, 1986. In 1994, Congress designated the holiday as a national day of service, and marking the third Monday in January every year as the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service – a ‘Day On, Not a Day Off.’.” The theme this year was “cultivating a beloved community mindset to transform unjust systems”. Critically, our show will ask the pressing question of how the King legacy is to be evaluated in light of the current state of U.S. racial tensions, discord, and political irreconcilabilities.
The show will examine not only the current state of racial injustice in the U.S., but also ask what should and can be done to advance racial justice.
