The family of Kendrick Johnson, a teenager who's death remains a controversy, were special guests at Ebenezer Baptist Church on Sunday.

The family, along with attorneys Benjamin Crump, Chevene B. King and Ebenezer Baptist Church senior pastor Dr. Raphael Warnock, spoke with the media after services Sunday morning.

Johnson's family is in Atlanta preparing for a rally that will be held in their son's honor Wednesday.

The rally will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Georgia State Capitol building and include speakers such as Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Joseph Lowery, Martin Luther King III and radio personality Rickey Smiley.
