In honor of the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr. tonight's show features some music that was of his time. Just Transition as a term, as a framework might be fairly new, the work of fighting for justice is an old one. We are within a long legacy that stretches back in history and will go on long after us. Some names have been remembered and recorded and we honor them, such as, Martin Luther King Jr. But, most have been forgotten and worse yet, intentionally left out. But nonetheless, the work goes on. And the music that accompanies the work is important. It moves us, lifts us up, but also expresses truths.
