As the world celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., our local NAACP chapter also honored his legacy. Community leaders and students spoke at the packed event in the Adorni Center. There were also musical performances by Zera Starchild. There were food vendors, community organizations and local businesses tabling. The theme of this year’s MLK Day event was “It Starts With Me: How We Must Create, Cultivate and Maintain a Beloved Community.” 

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an activist and Baptist minister who played a key role in the civil rights movement from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968. He sought equality and human rights for African Americans.
