Martin Luther King Day Celebration

Sat., Jan. 19, 10 a.m.

The Fountain Park neighborhood is home to one of the oldest statues of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the metro area. Rev. King is in a dramatic pose, right arm outstretched as he preaches to the world, his church vestments billowing out behind him. Erected in 1978, the statue received much-needed refurbishment in the summer of 2018 and now stands tall and proud once again to welcome the celebrants of this year's Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance. At 10 a.m. Saturday, January 19, community leaders from Centennial Christian Church, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, and community and civic leaders will participate in a peace walk that starts adjacent to the statue at 4950 Fountain Avenue, with the Jennings Warrior Marching Band leading the one-mile march. Following the walk, there will be a panel discussion in the Centennial Christian Church sanctuary on the theme of "Living the Dream: Dismantling Injustices in Community, Education & Literacy." A book-bag-and-school-supply giveaway follows the discussion. Admission is free to all. free admission
