Dr. Arthur Johnson
January 20, 2014 8:34 PM   Subscribe

Dr. Arthur Johnson was a classmate of Martin Luther King and a leader in the civil rights movement. He was the President of the Detroit Branch of the NAACP from 1987 to 1993, served as Assistant Superintendent of Detroit Public Schools, and was a Vice-President at Wayne State University. Today, on Martin Luther King's birthday, it seems appropriate to share this interview from 2009 (when Dr. Johnson was 83 years old) from WDET's Craig Fahle's show. Dr. Johnson died in 2011. Dr. Johnson is an eloquent and articulate speaker, spend a few quiet moments, as we end this day honoring Martin Luther King, hearing words from a leader of that most important movement.
