A program celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will be held on Saturday, January 12 from 5-7:30 p.m. at the Kennesaw Mountain High School Auditorium. The program, titled United We Stand, Divided We Fall, is an initiative of Reverend John W. and Evangelist Deborah J. Harris, local churches and the City of Kennesaw.
The celebration focuses around youth, with the reading of essays about unity, interpretive dance, and singing. A Community Choir made up of members of local churches will perform, as well as many special guests.
“The agenda for this year’s celebration is to continue establishing a great MLK Day tradition in Kennesaw,” said Reverend Harris. “We will also be presenting the MLK, Jr Trailblazer Awards, named for a man we honor as a trailblazer for racial equality and unity among all men through non-violent means. These awards are given to high school seniors that will be matriculating into college for fall semester.”
