THE SOUL OF MARTIN LUTHER KING

We visit with two great performers who carry on the legacy of MLK in life and spirit. First, the great songwriter, arranger and performer Isaac Hayes--who defined R&B for a generation--recalls his participation in lunch counter sit-ins and Memphis protest marches, and integrating the Stax office staff. And '60s soul singer "Able" Mable John talks about recording strong statements like "Stay Out of the Kitchen" and "Don't Hit Me No More," as well as her work now as a minister in Los Angeles.
