During a press conference announcing the opening of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s 49th annual convention to celebrate the organization’s 50th year, president Charles Steele noted that the organization would find some way to honor and recognize the embattled Falcon’s quarterback who is under federal indictment on dogfighting charges.
“We will work with anyone who opens their heart and arms to us,” said Steele.
