Fulton and South Fulton’s annual observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be a time of embracing the past and imagining the future.
The Twin Cities’ annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration is scheduled for Jan. 17, with a program to honor the late civil rights leader’s legacy set for 6:30 p.m. at Bells Chapel CME Church in Fulton.
The Rev. Michael L. Pry-or, pastor of House of Hope Ministries in Paducah, Ky., will be the speaker.
Weather permitting, a memorial march will start at 6 p.m. at Greater Antioch Missionary Baptist Church on Mears Street in Fulton. The procession will end at Bells Chapel CME Church, located at 200 North Highland Drive.
This year’s theme is “Twin Cities Embrace Our Past, Imagine Our Future” and the community is invited to attend.
