Honoring Martin Luther King Jr.

As Martin Luther King Jr. Day approaches us, one group here on the Coast is honoring his legacy with engaging events for citizens.

For over 30 years, the Coastwide Martin Luther King Jr. Committee has been committed to celebrating the life and works of the man who changed America.

Due to COVID-19 the committee will virtually host a series of events to honor Dr. King’s memory while providing a platform to enlighten and inspire. Coastwide Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Committee Chairman Allytra Perryman said, “It’s really encouraging and inspiring to hear not only the history of the Civil Rights movement and Dr. King from a national perspective, but with these programs and panel we show the connection between the national movements and what is happening here on the Gulf Coast.”

The events are going on now until next Tuesday, January 19th.

All activities can be viewed on their Facebook page or YouTube channels @CoastwideMLK.
