On this encore edition of Press Conference USA, host Carol Castiel along with VOA international broadcaster and Current Affairs producer Kim Lewis, talk with Peniel Joseph about his new book, “The Sword and the Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.” Peniel tells VOA that these two iconic civil rights leaders had much more in common than is typically thought. The disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on minorities and incidents of excessive police violence against African-Americans render their message about racial and economic justice all the more relevant today.
