Jack Soden speaks out about Black Lives Matter Protest tonight @ Graceland - THANK YOU JACK!

Memphis FOX13 heard for the first time on camera from the CEO of Elvis Presley Enterprises about the planned protest there tonight at 6 p.m. Jack Soden said he really hopes protesters will think twice about disrupting Elvis Week and tonight's candlelight vigil. He said thousands of people from all over the world have come to Memphis for the Elvis celebration and they shouldn't feel threatened. "Harassing our visitors from all over the world is pretty difficult to understand how that improves things, but we are going to be with peace and love and the fans are so great,” Soden said. Protest organizers said they picked Graceland specifically because they know they'll be noticed. Source: My Fox Memphis BIM: THANK YOU JACK SODEN! Thank You for speaking out! We fans should be able to come on vacation to Memphis and NOT feel threatened or be in FEAR. Thank You for acknowledging that and speaking out. Thanks for TCBing!
