Author Michael Eric Dyson dissects the relation between the gay rights movement and the civil rights movement. "Many African-American people forget that the civil rights movement itself was borrowed," says Dyson. "Pay some royalties to Mahatma Gandhi, because that's where King got it."

Named one of the 100 most influential black Americans by Ebony magazine, Dyson touches on politics, the arts and the personal, including justice, poverty, faith and spirituality.

Known as the "hip-hop" intellectual, he examines issues of class, race and poverty, and political strife. - Commonwealth Club of California
