A heckler disrupted the annual MLK breakfast in Chicago.

The heckler shouted that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is not honoring Martin Luther King's legacy by closing schools in the city. Many in attendance applauded as the woman was escorted out of the ballroom.

The annual MLK breakfast brings together civic and religious leaders from various faiths. This year, the breakfast celebrated the women of the civil rights movement and honored Reverend Willie Barrow, who worked closely with King as a field organizer.
