Leads interfaith service in Washington

|

The Rev. Bernice King opened the celebration of her father's famous "I Have a Dream" speech Wednesday with an interfaith service in Washington.

King said that her father, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., is often remembered as a freedom fighter for equal rights and human rights. But she said he was most importantly a man of faith. She says he was a prophet and "faith leader" and it was that "and the spirit of God that infused that movement."

Bernice King said the faith community must continue to lead every movement for justice and equality.
