Mayor A C Wharton Jr. was part of a select group of mayors invited to join President Barack Obama at the White House this week to discuss curbing youth violence.
Wharton's visit coincided with the 50th Anniversary of the historic 1963 March on Washington, where civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech.
Speaking about gun violence, Wharton said, "It's really perplexing because Dr. King did not die for that; that was not the dream he had."
