Clarence B. Jones was one of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s closest advisors. Jones even co-authored the famous "I Have a Dream" speech.

Farai Chideya talks with Jones about his new book, What Would Martin Say?, in which Jones uses King's life and speeches to suggest where the late reverend might stand on the Iraq War, affirmative action, and black leadership.
