We Shall Overcome
A 50-Year Commemoration of Dr. King’s Assassination
Thursday, April 5
5:15 – 6:45 pm
April 4, 1968, the day Martin Luther King Jr. was fatally shot, was a gut-wrenching low point in American history. MLK’s life and death have had a far-reaching impact on the American people and on our democracy. How does Dr. King’s work resonate today and what would he say about our country’s challenges? What do you think we have overcome; what rights are in jeopardy for our citizens; what feeds the obstacles that so obviously stand in the way? Join the Loveland Martin Luther King Events Committee for a multi-media forum, artwork by Thompson Valley students, and share your voice on this historical anniversary.
