Fifty years ago on April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee -an event that sent shock waves reverberating around the world.Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is considered the formative figure in the modern fight for civil rights, and his legacy looms large in the work of all those who follow him in his cause. Dr. Kings involvement with the NAACP dates back to his position on the executive committee of the NAACP Montgomery Branch in the 1950s, through his leadership in the various boycotts, marches and rallies of the 1960s, and up until his assassination in 1968. Dr. King pushed America to fulfill its promise of equal rights for all.
Our theme for the breakfast this year is "Remembering the Dream, Honoring the Dreamer".Join usas we continue tohonor the life and legacy of Dr. King by recommitting ourselves to keeping his dream alive.
