Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and as people across the United States commemorate the life of the great civil rights leader, many here still languish in poverty and remain disenfranchised as a result of racism–a legacy of slavery.

In a new book entitled "The Debt," TransAfrica founder and president Randall Robinson argues that America still owes an enormous debt to Africans and African Americans for the incalculable damage that blacks have suffered and continue to suffer as a result of nearly two hundred and fifty years of slavery and segregation.

Guest:

  • Randall Robinson, founder and president of TransAfrica.
