Remembering Martin Luther King’s Legacy: The MLK Lynchburg Community Council held the a virtual ceremony today. Facilitator Gloria Witt explained the theme,   “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

A multi-generational panel of area residents reflected on the theme, which came from an open letter King wrote in 1963 while jailed in Birmingham, Alabama, for leading a campaign against racial segregation and economic injustice in that city.

 

The event was  livestreamed from the Academy Center of the Arts.
