Michael Eric Dyson, former welfare father, Princeton Ph.D. and Baptist preacher, reassesses the legacy of Martin Luther King in the years since his death. A legacy, he argues, which has been misappropriated by groups ranging from white conservatives, black church leaders to advertisers and even the King family. Dyson brings alive a true revolutionary, a hero willing to sacrifice his reputation for the sake of the poor, a Ph.D. willing to roll up his sleeves and work for justice, a prince of the black pulpit willing to go to gaol for his beliefs. He rescues from history a man who is as important today as he was in the 60's, a man as radical as Malcolm X, who has as much in common with the rap artists and church leaders of today. Unafraid to confront King's personal life, Dyson defends King from the forces of historical amnesia, in a book that is ultimately as moving as it is controversial.
