Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

 “If you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice; say that I was a drum major for peace; I was a drum major for righteousness… We all have the drum major instinct.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The 5th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration “Embracing the Dream” will take place on Friday, Jan. 14, 2022, from noon-1 p.m. This year, we will have a virtual celebration exemplifying Dr. King's teachings due to the pandemic.
