WASHINGTON, D.C.  --  In conjunction with Sunday’s dedication of the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial, Dr. Alveda King, full-time director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life, will host a panel discussion and video presentation  Saturday, Oct. 15 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Family Research Council, 801 G Street.

 

“Redeem the Dream: The State of the Quality of Life in the 21st Century,” will present a frank assessment of how far African-Americans have come since Martin Luther King gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963, and how the dream has been imperiled by the abortion industry.

 

“The murder of millions of African-American babies by abortion was not something my Uncle Martin envisioned or would ever have supported,” said Dr. King. “He was unequivocally pro-life, and it would break his heart to know that so many African-American leaders endorse freedom of choice over the right to life.”

 

Co-hosting “Redeem the Dream” will be King for America, Priests for Life, Care-Net, Heartbeat INTL, Center for Urban Renewal and Education, Network of Politically Active Christians, Congress on Racial Equality, Students for Life, National Black Pro-Life Union and  Protecting Black Life.

 

Reservations are not required for the event.  To arrange an interview with Dr. King, please call Andre Kim at 347-286-7277.
