Judge LaDoris H. Cordell (ret), Independent Police Auditor, City of San Jose - Moderator
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. died in one of the most shocking assassinations in U.S. history, but little is remembered about the trials and tribulations he faced in his final year. Award-winning television and radio broadcast host Smiley (and new Dancing with the Stars contestant) chronicles the final 365 days of Dr. King’s life. Despite assaults on his character and ideology, Dr. King remained committed to ending racial inequality and segregation in our country. Hear more about his story of leadership and perseverance.
