Sharpton, MLK III to speak at Sunday's rally

FERGUSON, Mo. – The Rev. Al Sharpton will make another appearance in the area Sunday, supporting the parents of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Sharpton held a news conference on Tuesday, and held a peaceful gathering later that evening, calling for peace amid the unrest in Ferguson.

The National Action Network, National Bar Association, and the family of Brown will join Sharpton Sunday at 3 p.m. for a rally at Greater Grace Church, 3690 Pershall Road, Ferguson, Mo. 63135.

Saturday night, Sharpton spoke in New York City about Brown's death.

"Michael Brown was a cigar shoplifter to you. He was a boy on his way to college to us. We gonna march for the value of our loved ones! We gonna march for the dignity of our heritage," said Sharpton.

Martin Luther King III is also scheduled to speak at Sunday's rally.
