In Huey's dream, instead of being killed by a gunshot in 1968, civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. fell into a coma and then woke up thirty-two years later in time to be turned away at the polls when he tries to vote in the 2000 presidential election. His mythic stature seemingly insured, Dr. King is greeted as a hero and offered lucrative book and movie deals to chronicle his life. However, after he asks that Americans show compassion by turning the other cheek following the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, King's legend crumbles, making him a pariah in the public eye. It's at a sparsely attended book signing that Dr. King is reintroduced to his old friend and co-worker in the civil rights movement, Granddad. Accepting an invitation to dine at the Freeman home, Dr. King tells Huey, Riley, Tim, and Uncle Ruckus how Granddad was overshadowed by Rosa Parks during the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Sitting down to watch some television, Dr. King is appalled by how the black community is represented. And when the civil rights leader asks why so little improvement has been made in the wake of his shooting, Huey suggests that everyone has been waiting for him to come back and save them. Though Dr. King is depressed, Huey insists that he not give up and, to get things started, suggests holding an emergency action planning meeting for a new political party. As Dr. King takes to the airwaves to promote the venture, harsh criticism in the conservative press sends him to an urban promotions firm that uses hip-hop radio to get the word out. Yet, instead of an organizing meeting for their political party, those who show are just looking to party. However, after he uses the opportunity to deliver a scathing critique of the black community before moving to Canada, Dr. King inspires a revolution that eventually leads to Oprah Winfrey being elected President of the United States, in Huey's dream!
