Martin Luther King Remembrance

"So long as I do not firmly and irrevocably possess the right to vote I do not possess myself. I cannot make up my mind—it is made up for me. I cannot live as a democratic citizen, observing the laws I have helped to enact—I can only submit to the edict of others.”  

  -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Give Us the Ballot Address, Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom (May 17, 1957,      Washington, DC) 

Please join us for a community conversation as we remember the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a champion for equal rights and dignity for all.
