Remembering MLK with I.D.O.L. King’s “Dr. King” from 1991
Today is the day America celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King.
Christian rap pioneers also honored him with the song “Dr. King” from their debut album Explosion 220.127.116.11. that was released in 1991.
To find out why it was important to include this song and others about black history alongside the message of the gospel in their music, check out my interview with I.D.O.L. King founding member C.O.
(The discussion about this song and black pride in the church starts around the 4:30 mark.)
