Washington (CNN)Civil rights activists, including members of protest groups like Black Lives Matter, will meet at the White House Thursday with President Barack Obama as part of the administration's marking of Black History Month.

A senior administration official said the gathering would be a "first-of-its-kind (event) as the President will convene leaders who represent different generations of civil rights leaders."
That includes young activists from groups formed in the wake of incidents of police violence in places like Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore.


A White House statement said Aislinn Pulley, a leader of Black Lives Matter Chicago, and Deshaunya Ware, a student leader of the University of Missouri protest group Concerned Student 1950, would attend the meeting.
Other invited leaders include Al Sharpton, president of the National Action Network, NAACP President Cornell Brooks and National Urban League leader Marc Morial.


The group will "discuss a range of issues including the administration's efforts on criminal justice reform, building trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve and the President's priorities during his final year in office," the official said, adding that Attorney General Loretta Lynch would also be present.

MLK is pissed off and rolling over in his Grave. Booker T. Washington is also rolling over in his grave.

"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well."
