Today, Friday, May 27th, marks Hubert Humphrey's centennial. He was one of Minnesota's most influential policymakers who still has a lasting national policy legacy.

Students at Como Park High School and U.S. History teacher Roy Magnuson talked about Humphrey's pivotal civil rights speech in 1948 and how his strides in equal rights initiatives still empower all Minnesotans today.

Happy birthday HHH!
