Eldest son of Martin Luther King Jr. speaks in Pa.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The eldest son of Martin Luther King Jr. says civil rights are not dead in the United States, but that there are still many issues the country needs to address.

Martin Luther King III spoke to more than 700 people at Harrisburg High School on Wednesday. The 55-year-old King spoke at the request of the school district’s chief recovery officer and said the city, in the midst of a fiscal crisis, is going to need to “roll up their sleeves and work.”

King also spoke about the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act and the verdict in the Trayvon Martin murder trial. He says “Civil rights are not dead,” but that the country needs to find more constructive ways to have dialogue and move forward.
