January 20, 2014

The Rev. Irene Monroe and the Rev. Eugene F. Rivers III stopped by Studio Three to talk about the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King's image and message have been reused and repurposed in the many years since his death. While many pay tribute, others are looking to just cash in.

Chris Christie's attempts to put scandal allegations to rest. Tom Keane is a regular columnist for the Boston Globe. Erin O'Brien is a professor at UMass Boston.
