  • Martin Luther King in D.C

The city is holding its annual observance of the national holiday honoring the civil rights leader, on Monday, Jan. 15 at 10 a.m.at the East Somerville Community School, 50 Cross St. "I've grown up seeing all the history on his work and the wonderful things that Dr. King did".

Lafayette said he was impressed with the size of Saturday's event, and inspired to see that people here are not satisfied with the progress that's been made to realize Dr. King's dream.

"And help the younger generation remember Dr. King", Bonner said.

As President Trump was signing a proclamation celebrating the civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr, a news reporter April Ryan screamed, "Are you racist?" as Trump shook hands with several equal rights activists. Also, King expressed the hope that "my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character". Tickets are $15 and may be purchased by calling Prosperity Real Estate at 623-1957, online at www.Midwestcitymlk.com or at the door on the day of the event. In addition to Pena, that will include a performance by the Edwards Elementary School Folklorio Dance group, a spoken word piece by George Fox University's Israel Hammond and a performance by Newberg High School's Vocal Point choir ensemble. The free screening starts at 11:00 a.m. on Monday.

The Eagles established the run early in Saturday's contest, running the ball eight times on the team's first 12 offensive snaps. New England (14-3) will host the victor of Sunday's (Monday AEDT) divisional matchup between Jacksonville and Pittsburgh.


Locally, the day will be marked with a parade and various activities, just as the holiday is celebrated each year.

Arlington city officials said they denied a parade permit because organizers fell short on funding for security and traffic management, not because of the potential protests and boycotts. Students, faculty and staff will come together from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.to perform community service at the Homeless Coalition of Southern Indiana, Green Valley Care Center and Our Place Drug and Alcohol Services. Doors open at 7 a.m. Program begins at 8 a.m. Oklahoma County District Judge Alecia Timmons will be keynote speaker.

The event will begin with a half-hour reception at 5:30 p.m. Auggie Gonzeles returns to serve as emcee once more for the hour-long main program at 6 p.m.
