In hour one of Here & Now's Jan. 15, 2018 full broadcast, we discuss the false alarm about a missile strike in Hawaii over the weekend with security analyst Jim Walsh. Also, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is being marked across the country, including Memphis, where the civil rights leader was assassinated in 1968. We take a look back at King's ties to the city with scholar and author Otis Sanford. And Confederate flags and statues have sparked demonstrations in communities across the country. But not all acts of confrontation and reconciliation occur in public. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
