Equality Group To Ring NYSE Friday's Opening Bell

CLICK HERE FRIDAY, 9:30 a.m. EST TO WATCH LIVE

NEW YORK - On Friday, January 14, executives and guests of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) will visit the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to highlight the 25th anniversary of the observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.

On November 2, 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill into law proclaiming the third Monday in January to be a federal holiday in remembrance of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. The holiday was observed for the first time on January 20, 1986.

To mark this momentous occasion, CORE’s Chairman, Hon. Roy Innis, joined by Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman, FOX Business News Anchor Charles Payne, Dr. Herb London, President of the Hudson Institute and others, will ring the NYSE Opening Bell.

About CORE
Founded in 1942, CORE is the third oldest and one of the "Big Four" civil rights groups in the United States. From the protests against "Jim Crow" laws of the 40's to the "Sit-ins" of the 50's and the "Freedom Rides" of the 60's; through the cries for "Self-Determination" in the 70's and "Equal Opportunity" in the 80's to the struggle for community development in the 90's, CORE has championed true equality for all people.

CORE continues to serve the community in the new millennium by protecting the 2nd Amendment, forming the Affordable Power Alliance and offering Immigration, Citizenship and Financial Literacy Programs.(Source: CORE)
