On the eve of the presidential inauguration, what does it mean to be civically engaged in 2017? Drawing inspiration from Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy, BHS Director of Public History Julie Golia and BHS Oral Historian Zaheer Ali, in a LIVE recording of their popular Brooklyn history podcast, Flatbush & Main, delve into our archives to consider the varied approaches to Civil Rights tactics over the course of our nation’s history.
