Kids Commute - Civil Rights Week!

Jan 24, 2020

This week, we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement.

Welcome to a new week on IPR's Kids Commute. This week starts out on Monday, January 20, which is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In his honor, we've put together Civil Rights Week, with history and music that celebrates his legacy.

As promised in the episode, below is a video of Natalie Douglas singing "Why? (The King of Love is Dead)" at Birdland Jazz Club in New York City in 2016.
