A weekly public affairs show about McKeesport and the Mon Valley, produced in cooperation with WEDO (810) and WZUM (1550).
(Originally broadcast: 1-15-2016)
Topic: Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Guest: Johnathan White, history instructor, Penn State Greater
Allegheny Campus, McKeesport
How Discussed: Instead of having the day off, student volunteers from throughout Pennsylvania will come to Penn State Greater Allegheny to volunteer at Braddock Day Care, McKeesport Little Theatre, Auberle, The Palms Assisted Living Home, Braddock Library, Braddock Free Store, White Oak Borough, and White Oak Park. Why is volunteering an important way to remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day? How does White connect King, who was assassinated in 1968, to students who have no memory of the civil rights movement? How --- and why --- does King's message continue to resonate?
