Highlight Reel — MLK50, Beth Mathews Returns, & Some Highlight Moments


Last week, I spent time in Memphis, TN for the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s death. At 6:01pm on April 4, I was at the Lorraine Motel for a moment of silence along with thousands of other people. Al Green was there. Bernie Sanders was there. Fr. Michael Pfleger was there. It was a beautiful, solemn moment. In this episode, I share a bit more about my time there.

ICYMI, ICE raided a factory a few days ago and arrested 100 immigrants while they were working. It’s the biggest ICE raid in 10 years. Tragic! My friend Beth Mathews (who has already been on the podcast), returns to the show for a short chat about how she sprang into action to care for the families left without fathers and mothers as a result of the raid.
