Contrary

Dr. Alveda King

The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King explains why she’s speaking at the Glenn Back rally in Washington, D.C.

“I am attending this rally to help reclaim America. I’m joining Glenn to talk about faith, hope, charity, honor. Those are things that America needs to reclaim. Our children need to remember to love each other how to honor each other, their parents, God and their neighbors. I agree with Glenn on all of those principles. So that’s why I’m here. For me it’s principles over politics.”

King, who served as a Democrat in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1979 to 1981, was a keynote speaker at today’s non-partisan rally, which also featured speeches from Beck and Sarah Palin.

Throughout her career King has courted controversy as an advocate for the pro-life movement. After having two abortions herself, King began speaking publicly, often at college campuses, about abortion issues. In 1996 she publicly condemned her aunt Coretta Scott King’s support of abortion rights.
