There has been much said about the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., both by politicos and his family alike. However, what you may not know about Dr. King and US-African-American history may surprise you.
The National Black Republican Association contains numerous links concerning issues that affect the conservative African-American community. Among those links includes an article written by Dr. King’s niece, Dr. Alveda C. King, entitled, “A Covenant With Life: Reclaiming MLK’s Legacy.” It is here where she stipulates that the late civil rights leader was, in her view, a Republican (MP3 to a couple minute audio by Dr. Alveda King). The blog, BlackAndRight similarly poses this view.
Another article at NBRA similarly gives a great overview about the battle over civil rights between the Republicans and Democrats.
