With this week's unveiling of the MLK, Jr. Memorial on the National Mall, the Barbershop guys weigh in on what King's legacy means today. They also debate whether gay rights and civil rights are the same. Host Michel Martin talks with author Jimi Izrael, civil rights attorney Arsalan Iftikhar, syndicated columnist Ruben Navarrette, and Latina Magazine Vice President Javier Morgado.
