Clinton made the remarks at the traditional Martin Luther King Unit Breakfast and Coretta Scott King, one of the events that take place at the commemoration of Bloody Sunday, and where an award was given to the ex-senator.

The ceremony was also attended by two legislators who have already announced their intention to compete for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 presidential election, independent senator Bernie Sanders (Clinton’s opponent in the previous Democratic primaries) and New Jersey legislator Cory Booker.
