Blacks, Whites and Access to Justice

Hosted by

The mass of conflicting evidence released by prosecutors fed heated arguments about how and why Officer Darren Wilson killed Michael Brown last August in Ferguson, Missouri. That has sparked a broader debate about equal access to justice for black Americans. On this Martin Luther King Day, we are re-broadcasting a discussion that first aired on November 26.

Also, Aurora, Colorado, braces for a mass murder trial, and a re-examination of President Lyndon Johnson. Was he the key to civil rights movement success, or one of the biggest obstacles?
