MLK Day speaker: Economic quality a mission not met
The Rev. Dr. Neal R. Jones reminded the Martin Luther King Jr. Day assembly Monday that the civil rights leader recognized early on the role of economic equality in the push for racial equality. Listening to Jones' message was the Rev. William Gaither, president of the Camden-Kershaw County Branch NAACP which sponsored the program. - photo by Keri Todd Boyce
If Martin Luther King Jr. were alive today, he’d be astonished at how far we’ve come in racial equality, said the Rev. Dr. Neal R. Jones during a King Day Celebration at Camden First United Methodist Church Monday. “But I believe he would be appalled to see how far our nation has retreated in economic equality,” he said. Jones was the guest speaker for the Camden-Kershaw Branch NAACP-sponsored ceremony.
