Revisiting Martin Luther King Jr. Day memories with Tyler Howell

Monday, January 18 is the day designated to honor and remember Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. This day of remembrance for Dr. King is the first since the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department and the subsequent demonstrations not just in Minneapolis, but around the country and internationally.

Unfortunately, it was also a summer of rioting and looting, bringing back painful memories for many who lived through the Civil Rights movement.

WTIP’s Rhonda Silence reached out to one of our friends here at the station, long-time volunteer Tyler Howell, revisiting a 2019 interview about Dr. King.

Here’s their conversation.

Listeners who would like to hear the past interview with Tyler, as well as the others who spoke with WTIP in 2019, it can be found Here: North Shore remembrances of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
