Our guest, Rev. Dr. Floyd Harris, Jr., faces charges for participating in a "Black Lives Matter" march in Fresno, CA. He is prosecuted for obeying Proverbs 31:8-9, just as Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other human rights advocates were throughout history.

Rev. Harris is assistant minister at New Light for New Life Church of God in Fresno, CA and director of National Network in Action, a social justice organization and radio channel where MaryLovesJustice is host (NNIA1). Visit the NNIA website http://xyfloyd.wix.com/nnia >> He founded and directs the Freedom School to help children improve academically, develop a sense of social/civic responsibility and a strong work ethic. Dr. Harris patterns his advocacy after Dr. King's methodology, who was similarly targeted for standing with oppressed people and demanding that everybody's human and civil rights be honored.

Congratulations on UNITY for JUSTICE, America. The "Black Lives Matter" movement evolved after wrongful deaths in 2014. Americans of all races and backgrounds object to police violence against unarmed citizens, which is reportedly nine times more likely to happen to Black men and boys. It is noteworthy that numerous recent protests after African Americans were killed under the color of the law had even more Caucasian participants than Blacks. We believe Dr. King would be proud to know that leaders like Dr. Harris and other freedom-loving people in 21st century America have chosen to "live together as brethren" rather than to remain silent about injustice and "perish together as fools" (MLK).
