Many did not know they would see a day when the United States Capitol would be invaded by a mob of anti-Black racist home-grown terrorists inspired by a sitting racist president. It did happen on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. Twelve days later, the nation celebrated the ninety second birthday of the pacifist, and civil rights leader, Doctor, The Reverend Martin Luther King, Junior. During this episode of What's Your Point? host Garnett Ankle speaks with the Distinguished University Chair, Founding Director of the New Racial Justice Initiative, and Professor of History, at the University of Saint Thomas, Doctor Yohuru Williams. The discussion surrounds the attempted coup d'e-tat by an anti-Black racist mob at the United States Capitol while a joint session of the United States Congress was counting the Electoral College votes for the new president of the United States. Also, the host and Professor Williams discuss the legacy of Dr. King.
