164. T. D. Antoine & Joey Kent

164. We interview T. D. Antoine & Joey Kent, who teamed up to create the documentary, Beyond Galilee, about the visit of Martin Luther King to the Galilee Baptist Church in Shreveport, August 1958. They were able to interview members of the church who were there at the time as well as find archival TV footage that had not been seen since the 1950's.
