In Rochester on Sunday, a legendary name in civil rights called on Americans to "take a knee" in prayer in turbulent times. 

Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, spoke at the benefit dinner for Rochester’s Women's Care Center. The center provides aid and care for women dealing with unplanned pregnancies.

King says the country is tense and frightened. But she says creating what she calls a "culture of life," where all people are respected, can guide Americans to work together, especially when there's so much anger in public life.
