enator Bernie Sanders spent Monday, November 23rd in Atlanta, capping a two-day swing through Georgia.
Calling the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “a hero” and “an inspiration,” Sanders visited the King Center, where he said he was “honored and pleased” to meet with the Rev. Bernice King, the Kings’ youngest daughter.
“Dr. King saw not only the need to end racism and segregation but to create an economy that works for all Americans,” Sanders told reporters gathered on a sidewalk outside the Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Martin Luther King Jr. was the pastor.
As a student activist at the University of Chicago, Sanders traveled to Washington D.C. in 1963 to attend the March on Washington and saw King deliver his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
