SOUNDS IN THE SPIRIT OF MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

We celebrate the work and life of Dr. King through the sounds of freedom, including two guests who have added their own voices to that choir. Sixties soul queen Fontella Bass used her gospel background and voice to make freedom statements of her own, such as her biggest hit "Rescue Me." Scholar, critic and hepcat Albert Murray tells us how African-Americans have used blues and jazz as a springboard to a better place--and why Duke Ellington called him the "unsquarest person I know." Plus music from John Coltrane, Johnny Cash, the Staples Singers and more.

HIGHWAY 61 WITH JAMES COTTON

Travel down Highway 61 with blues harpist James Cotton. Also music from Al Green, PJ Harvey, Greg Brown and Fontella Bass.
