Interesting to know about this man, and its also interesting to realise, how many of the main figures of the black US-civilrights movement have been gay (wanna remember here on my friend james baldwin too).
But the middle-class movement around martin luther king wasnt indeed very left; they advocated a black capitalism and collected only signatures.
thats why, on the other hand, the plack panther party called for an armed fight and increased a lot, after the govtm even had murdered this harmless christian preacher of love, MLK.
Malcolm X called the march on washington "a capitulation" and even baldwin thought, that only with that march they risked the same as much of blood and death, then if they had more militantly occupied washington, the airport, and the white house itself.
