The head of Michigan's chapter of the National Action Network will be in Flint Tuesday in response to controversy surrounding Hurley Medical Center.
A nurse has filed a lawsuit, claiming the hospital refused to let her treat a patient because the nurse is African-American.
Rev. Charles Williams will be holding a press conference to demand answers about the incident.
The nurse claims the patient's father did not want an African-American nurse treating his child.
Hurley is not commenting.
Williams says questions need to be answered. He says Hurley was a publicly-funded hospital, and this type of discrimination should not be tolerated.
That press conference is set to begin at 11 a.m. Tuesday morning near the emergency room entrance.
WNEM will have complete coverage of the event.
