MLKSunday January 18, 3PM

Grace United Methodist Church – 6199 Waterman Blvd.

The SDCC Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Committee invites neighbors and friends to its 23rd annual celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Join us for a day of music, reflection, and remembrance.

Theme: Our theme is always a quote from one of Dr. Martin Luther King’s speeches. This year’s theme is “History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.”

Keynote Speaker: Reverend Thurman Williams of Grace and Peace Fellowship will speak.

Neighborhood Steward Awards: Every year, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Committee presents awards to Skinker DeBaliviere residents who have made exceptional contributions to the neighborhood. Please join us to congratulate this year’s recipients!
