Niece Of Martin Luther King Jr. Gives Speech At State Capitol

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of people gathered for Rose Day at the capitol Wednesday.

Pro-life advocates gave lawmakers roses to symbolize their beliefs.

Dr. Martin Luther King Junior's niece, Alveda King, was the keynote speaker. 

"Martin Luther King Junior said injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  Don't be like the Romans who committed infanticide. When you value the human personality you won't kill anybody," said Alveda King. 

The Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma sponsored the event.
