CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Former state Rep. Tommie Brown, keynote speaker for Chattanooga's Martin Luther King Day events Monday, says she wants to have a work session on the lessons learned between passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 and today.

"This is not a speech, but a think piece," she said.
