On the day after the inauguration many thousands are expected to take part in the 'Women's March on Washington". Organizers who began planning the event last November shortly after the presidential election say the objective is to bring national attention to women and other groups who feel they have been marginalized. We'll hear different perspectives on who's going, who isn't and its possible political impact.
Carole King began writing songs when she was just 3 years old. She was still a teenager when she wrote her first No. 1 hit: “Will You Love Me Tomorrow?” King wrote or co-authored some of the biggest hits of the ’60s and ’70s, including “The Loco-Motion” and “You’ve Got a Friend.” Her groundbreaking 1971 album “Tapestry” won four Grammys and is one of the best-selling records of all time. With songs like “It’s Too Late,” “I Feel the Earth Move” and “So Far Away,” it’s easy to see why it sold millions of copies. King is well-known as a singer and songwriter, but she’s also a serious political and environmental activist. Diane talks with Carole King about her music, her life and the causes she fights for.
