USA “becoming the dis-United States”: Divisiveness criticized in King Day speeches at MLK Jr NHP
ATLANTA — A commemorative service for Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. that was nearly imperiled by the federal government shutdown was held Monday morning in Atlanta at a church called King's "spiritual home."
King's daughter, Rev. Bernice King, said in her remarks that the annual service at Ebenezer Baptist Church came during a moment of crisis in America, while condemning gridlock and partisanship in Washington that led to the shutdown.
