I worked on my interview of Michael Pollan with videographer Jeffrey Cushing. Thank god we’ve managed to stay in touch—because today, just this morning, he sent me this new gem, hot off his virtual press. If you like his work, remember to forward this link and star his video. ~ ed.

Richard Williams, PhD, remembers what it was like to have been in graduate school with Martin Luther King, Jr. at Boston University during the 1950’s. Among other reminiscences, Williams also relates an early episode of civil rights organizing and action undertaken on behalf of King himself, who suffered discrimination in housing policy in Boston at that time. Williams relates how organized students waged a campaign to change through sanction unjust and, ultimately, immoral policies.
