AUDIO: Lenny Wilkens on Dr. King, LeBron

It has been a half-century since Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. King’s message has resonated with the people for generations, and that continues to this day.

On January 14th, the day before what would have been Dr. King’s 89th birthday, the Akron-Summit County Public Library will host a lecture, which features hall of fame player and coach Lenny Wilkens. “Coach Lenny” joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to not only talk about King, but how Jackie Robinson really affected him while growing up in Brooklyn, New York, in the shadows of Ebbets Field.

Wilkens also talked about LeBron James, coaching the 1992 Dream Team, and what coaches influenced him throughout his career. Wilkens’s speech will be at 2 PM on Sunday, and it is free to the public.
