GARY, Ind. (AP) -- The youngest daughter of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is scheduled to go to northwest Indiana this weekend to help host a program aimed at getting youth engaged in positive activities.
 
The Times of Munster reports (http://bit.ly/Wab9KA ) reports Bernice King will give the keynote speech at the rally 9 a.m. Saturday at Van Buren Baptist Church in Gary. She also will make appearances at Calumet College of St. Joseph in Hammond and at Indiana University Northwest in Gary.
 
During a speech last month at the Atlanta church where her father was pastor, Bernice King urged Americans to draw inspiration from her slain father's nonviolent campaign after a difficult year of military conflicts abroad and natural disasters at home.::
