Eureka, Ca., (KIEM) Following the People’s Rally and March for Justice, all roads led to the Adorni Center in Eureka Monday afternoon. To kick off the MLK Commemoration titled, “Strength in Our Community: Past, Present and Future.”
The Eureka NAACP hosted the annual holiday celebration to promote justice for all people. At the celebration, music filled the room and awards were given to those who have remained true to the community.
Black Humboldt member, Dionna Fletcher, shared that events such as this allow for people of all race and backgrounds to come together, learn from one another, and live as one.
“These events are important for diversity,” said Fletcher. “And to be able to teach each other is impactful, if we are open and vulnerable enough to listen we will learn something. At least one thing.”
