From North Carolina-
The president of the North Carolina NAACP delivered a long-distance sermon of defiance Saturday evening at Wilmington's annual interfaith service for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
"Bowing down is not an option,' the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II told a packed audience at St. James Episcopal Church, criticizing President-elect Donald J. Trump and many of his Cabinet appointees.
Barber, who could not reach Wilmington, delivered his remarks by telephone, played over loudspeakers in the sanctuary. He still drew applause and "Amens" from the crowd, however, for such assertions as "We're still going to be a witness for justice, we're still going to be a witness for love."
