Is Gay the New Black?

Michael Eric Dyson, the George­town soci­ol­o­gy pro­fes­sor and pub­lic intel­lec­tu­al, talks here about how civ­il rights move­ments have his­tor­i­cal­ly built upon one oth­er. MLK took pieces from Gand­hi, and the gay rights move­ment is now draw­ing on the black civ­il rights move­ment of the 60s. The clip runs about 7 min­utes, and you can watch the full video here. You can also watch anoth­er Dyson speech, “No Dreams Deferred?: Black Aspi­ra­tions from Mar­tin Luther King Jr. to Jay‑Z.”
