North Carolina: Legislature Bars Rev. Barber from Entering Its Building

Reverend William Barber, the nation’s most eminent civil rights leader at this time, has been barred from entering the Legislative building in North Carolina.

Reverend Barber, the president of the state NAACP, has led the Moral Monday’s protests at the Capitol, where thousands of protestors meet in front of the statehouse, listen to his impassioned speech defending civil rights and liberties, then call upon their legislators.

His lawyer will fight the ban as infringement of his constitutional right to speak and assemble.

The New York Times recently featured Rev. Barber as a new breed of religious leaders, fervent about social justice.
