Dr. King was not an enemy of homosexual rights, either, but that has not discouraged many gay rights opponents, including his sole surviving daughter Bernice King, from touting the famed civil rights leader as one of their own. This fascinating situation - a familial, and wider, conflict over the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., in relation to gay rights - poses the problem that this book seeks to address and resolve. Michael G. Long looks to uncover and understand King's thought and actions in relation to homosexuality and gay rights, thereby assessing the use of his legacy in debates about these issues."@en ;
