KEZI 9 News spoke to one woman who attended the event to find out what she thought of King.

"Thank you so much for putting your life on the line to create opportunity for all because all groups have the same gifts amount doled out," Talicia Brown-Crowell said. "But not all groups have the same opportunity. So, we need all groups to have the same equal amount of opportunity available."
