The Rev. Bernice King opened the celebration of her father's famous "I Have a Dream" speech Wednesday with an interfaith service in Washington.
King said that her father, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., is often remembered as a freedom fighter for equal rights and human rights. But she said he was most importantly a man of faith. She says he was a prophet and "faith leader" and it was "the spirit of God that infused that movement."
The faith community must continue to lead every movement for justice and equality, Bernice King said.

Octavia Spencer delivered the most timely Golden Globes winner's speech on Sunday, honoring domestic workers by invoking Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the eve of the national holiday celebrating the civil rights leader's life and vision.
"With regard to domestics in this country, now and then, I think Dr. King said it best: 'All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance.' And I thank you for recognizing that with our film," Spencer, 41, said in accepting the award for best supporting actress for her acclaimed performance as a maid in The Help.
Spencer, a native of Montgomery, Ala., later told CNN backstage that while the characters in The Help are fictional, "they represent scores of real people."
