Groups Remember MLK, Criticize Glenn Beck

Many people gathered in Greenville Saturday to honor and remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and all that he stood for on the anniversary of his “I have a dream speech,” and also to talk about their dissatisfaction with Glenn Beck’s rally.

Members with the NAACP and SCLC said they were not happy that Beck chose to have a rally at the Lincoln Memorial, where Dr. King had his famous speech, and on the same day.

Rufus Huggins with the SCLC said, “I look at it as a situation of trying to divide, trying to divide the good people of this country, the white people and the black people, we need to come together.” He says he believes equality is going in the wrong direction right now, and he hopes things will change.
