The Journal: Inequality in America

In the months before his death, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had expanded his focus on racial justice to include reducing economic inequality. On this week's 42nd anniversary of King's assassination, Bill Moyers interviews attorneys Bryan Stevenson and Michelle Alexander to learn how poor and working class Americans have been falling behind and what America must do to fulfill Dr. King's vision.
