Hillary Clinton Calls for ‘More Love and Kindness’ During Montgomery Boycott Commemoration

Clinton spoke from the historic church where the boycott was organized.

Clinton invoked a sermon Dr. King gave at this church the first night of the bus boycott. "Justice is really love in calculation,” he said, "Justice is really love correcting that which works against love. Standing beside love is always justice."

Reiterating her calls for criminal justice reform and gun control, she added: "It’s time to change our approach and end the era of mass incarceration. And we must do more to address the epidemic of gun violence that is plaguing our country. I consider this a national emergency."

Bernice King, Martin Luther King’s youngest daughter, delivered the benediction.

The event ended with the churchgoers -- including Clinton -- holding hands and singing "We Shall Overcome."
