Rally held to mark King Jr's speech

March competes with conservative event on "I have a dream" speech anniversary.

    A rally organised by TV personality Glenn Beck has been heavily criticised for being held on the anniversary of the March on Washington by Martin Luther King JR and his supporters.

    Reverend Al Sharpton and other civil rights leaders held a competing event to commemorate that day 47 years ago.
