King Day Moral Monday March Planned

GOLDSBORO, N.C. North Carolina civil rights leaders plan to honor Martin Luther King Jr. by holding a Moral Monday march in Goldsboro.


Organizers said the march Monday on the King Holiday is the 24th Moral Monday protest since lawmakers left Raleigh in July. During last year's session, close to 1,000 people were arrested as they demanded the Republican-led Legislature stop or reverse policies that they say hurt recipients of Medicaid and unemployment benefits.


North Carolina NAACP President William Barber is expected to speak at the 4 p.m. rally. He will also be in South Carolina on Monday morning as the keynote speaker at that state's King Day rally in Columbia.


Barber and the North Carolina NAACP is preparing for a massive march Feb. 8 in Raleigh.
