The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece is slated to speak Saturday at a controversial rally by radio talk show host Glenn Beck scheduled to take place in the same location as her uncle’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

Saturday is also the 47th anniversary of the speech the civil rights leader delivered in front of the Lincoln Memorial.

“We’re reclaiming America and restoring honor,” Alveda King said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.” “I believe we do that with faith, with hope, with charity, and honoring our brothers and our sisters as we honor each other.”
