Host Carol Castiel and Current Affairs producer, Kim Lewis, talk with Peniel Joseph about his most recent book, “The Sword and the Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.,” in which he dispels misconceptions about these two slain iconic civil rights leaders. Joseph paints a nuanced portrait of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. who shared a common vision of dignity and full citizenship for African Americans, and demonstrates how relevant their complementary messages are today.
