Salina To Celebrate King Legacy

KSAL Staff - January 13, 2017 8:39 am

Salina will recognize the life, legacy, and leadership of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this weekend. Multiple events are planned.

As part of MLK  Jr. Week, there is a community potluck on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at Sunrise Presbyterian Church,  825 E. Beloit Avenue. Open to the public, the event will include performances by local spoken-word artists and musicians.

On Sunday a 3:30 p.m. church service, also at Sunrise Presbyterian, features Sheppard as guest speaker and solo artist, along with the New Dawn Singers and youth spoken-word performers highlighting Dr. King’s message of peace and unity. The 2017 King Week theme is “Forward Together.”

The following Friday, January 20, King Week closes out with a special edition of ONE MIC at Astra Books and Coffee House with Kansas City-based artist They Call Me Sauce, a rapper and community activist. The event starts at 7 p.m. and is free of charge, supported by Friday Night Live.
