Alveda King Glenn Beck Rally Restoring Honor Speech Video

Alveda King at Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally speech video is something that many want to see.  Over four decades after Alveda King's uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, gave his famed 'I have a dream' speech at the footsteps of the Lincoln Memorial, there too she stood, speaking at the rally.

Many criticized the rally, claiming that Beck was trying to undermine the Civil Rights movement by choosing August 28th as the date and the Lincoln Memorial as the venue.  

Al Sharpton had a parallel rally in Washington DC, but far less people showed up.  The title of Sharpton's rally was "Restoring the Dream."  Many noted how his address spoke negatively about the Beck rally, although speakers at the Restoring Honor rally said nothing of the other event.

Alveda King has been an influential face in the landscape of politics.  She served in the Georgia House of Representatives.  She's been a strong pro-life voice, and has even publicly criticized her aunt Coretta Scott King's abortion rights views.
