Video: MLK Award Recipient Explains King's Values

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
--Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Margaret Rozga, the widow of civil rights leader Father James Groppi, delivered a powerful speech in Madison after receiving the 2013 Martin Luther King Heritage Award on behalf of her late husband. During the speech, she reminded everyone that the struggle is not over and those attacking union rights, free speech, voter's rights and our natural resources today are NOT acting in the tradition of King's values.

Her speech was well received, but some folks were angered that Dr. Rozga was criticizing Gov. Scott Walker who was sitting in the front row near the podium. Now, what did she say that would give anyone that idea?
