From the Publisher:
One of the late civil rights leader's closest friends and associates speaks out about what the outspoken Martin Luther King, Jr., would have to say about the issues confronting modern-day America, including the war in Iraq, Islamic terrorism, affirmative action, illegal immigration, reparations for slavery, anti-Semitism, and African-American leadership. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.

When the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968, the world lost one of the greatest moral authorities of the twentieth century. We would all benefit from hearing Martin's voice, if only he were alive today. . . .

If anyone would have insight into Martin's thoughts and opinions, it would be Clarence B. Jones, King's personal lawyer and one of his closest principal advisers and confidants. Removing the mythic distance of forty years' time to reveal the flesh-and-blood man he knew as his friend, Jones ponders what the outspoken civil rights leader would say about the serious issues that bedevil contemporary America: Islamic terrorism and the war in Iraq, reparations for slavery, anti-Semitism, affirmative action, illegal immigration, and the state of African American leadership.

Annotation:
A close confidante of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Clarence B. Jones sets down, late in life, his remembrances of aspects of King, the man, while projecting how King's philosophy could be applied to events in our time. Jones has long held his silence, and he explains why; but his association with King remains a living essence, and his familiarity with King's writings, speeches, and everyday thoughts and words make this book stand out. Jones writes that King frequently called on him to research important topics, and this is what he does in WHAT WOULD MARTIN SAY?
