Postponed MLK program now slated for Saturday

“Remembering Dr. King: Told by the Youth,” originally scheduled for Monday's national holiday but postponed because of the weather, will  take place at 3 p.m. Saturday in the Johnnie B. Wiley Amateur Athletic Sports Pavilion, 1100 Jefferson Ave.

The program will give high school students a chance to express what Martin Luther King Jr. means to them. It will include original songs and poems by young people, including members of the Omega Gents and Omega Ladies, part of the Omega Mentoring Program that meets each Monday at the pavilion. Former Common Council Member Clifford Bell, who led the committee that oversaw creation of the bust in Martin Luther King Jr. Park, also will talk about King’s impact on the city.

The public is invited.
