Jeff and Lucas Morel, on this special MLK Day episode, discuss the ideas, actions, and legacies of Dr. Martin Luther King jr. and Malcolm X. What were their core philosophies and beliefs?

You can find Lucas’s latest book, Lincoln and the American Founding, on Amazon. The other books mentioned are here:
