On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the University of Virginia opened its doors to an national race historian.
At the Miller Center Monday afternoon, professor Michael Klarman spoke about our country's gains and losses in race relations. He says we've come a long way since the days of King, but we still have a ways to go. Klarman also talked about his new book, called Unfinished Business, which combines race, politics and societal issues.
"I think the important point to make is that we've made extraordinary progress, more than anybody could have dreamed of 50 years ago, but then we've also made less progress than people at the peak of the Civil Rights Movement would have aspired to," stated Klarman.
Professor Klarman's new book is part of a series featuring discussions on civil rights laws in America.
