Mr. D is on NPR’s “All Things Considered” this Morning for MLK

Martin Luther King, Jr.

This week, I joined a panel of educators from New York City to discuss the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday for NPR’s local NY affiliate WNYC 93.9FM.  We spoke about teaching ideas, challenges and struggles of teaching about Dr. King in schools today.  It first aired on Morning Edition as a local segment.  The segment is linked here:


The first audio piece was broadcast on WNYC’s Morning Edition, and a shorter version will be broadcast live on All Things Considered this afternoon (4-6pm)

 The second two audio clips are extra material from the interviews that add some depth to the broadcast piece–which was severely truncated.

It was a fun, informative and feisty session.  I hope I did the Neighborhood proud.
