At Augsburg College, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s message still resonates through the arts, more than 40 years after his assassination.

Chuck D.,  the leader and co-founder of rap group Public Enemy offered a provocative take on race, class, and Dr. King in 2016. He didn't want cameras rolling, but spoke briefly.

From accusations of police brutality in communities of color across the country, to Black Lives Matter protests erupting in the Twin Cities, 2015 was a year of racial tension.
