“We Shouldn’t Simply Accept Dr. King’s Success Without Honoring His Struggle”

John Avlon explores the history of the civil rights movement, and the reactions of its chief opposers to Dr. Martin Luther King.  Far from being idealized as the passionate and non-violent activist he is considered today, Dr. King was instead vilified by many of his adversaries.  In this article, Avalon explores these reactions to Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement, and imagines what social conservatives of today would say about the man many consider to be among their chief influences.  This article can also be found at The Daily Beast.
