HOLIDAY EDITION: BLACK-BROWN BRIDGES. As immigrant communities in Alabama and other states experience a civil rights crisis, veteran African American leaders have stepped up to march with Latinos against anti-immigration laws. On the national holiday to remember civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., this pre-recorded edition takes a look at other bridges between Black and Brown communities: popular African-American singers sang decades ago in Spanish to reach out to Latino audiences, and the ways in which young Latino musicians are using African and African-American rhythms to create new music for all audiences.
