Gospel artist Kirk Franklin says he's boycotting Dove Awards
NASHVILLE, TN Grammy-winning gospel artist Kirk Franklin says he's boycotting the Gospel Music Association's Dove Awards after they edited out part of his acceptance speech earlier this month in which he called for prayers after a police shooting in his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. Franklin posted a Facebook video on Monday that said he would no longer attend events associated with the Dove Awards, GMA or Trinity Broadcasting Network "until tangible plans are put into place to protect and champion diversity." The 50th annual awards show was held in Nashville, Tennessee, on Oct. 15 and aired on Oct. 20 on TBN. "Not only did they edit my speech, they edited the African American experience," Franklin said. "Although completely unintentional it caused great harm and deeply wounded many in the African American and gospel community."
