“MLK Jr Day, A Tribute to Courage. And We March On…”
An Official Event of A Poor People’s Campaign

Dr. King spoke in Hattiesburg, MS on March 19, 1968. Two weeks later, he was assassinated on April 4, 1968 in Jackson, MS. May we come together to honor the courage and sacrifice of the brave men and women who fought for freedom and equality for all during the Civil Rights Movement.

Please dress warm and bring musical instruments, glow sticks, scooters, skates, signs etc and join us for a Unity March beginning at Ebenezer MB Church at 6p! Family friendly, we want to give the community an opportunity to feel the energy of a March together. Following will be a Candlelight Vigil honoring all the heroes of the Civil Rights Movement.

7:00p Travel Back to 1968 with Songs, Stories, And Inspiring Speakers.

8:15-9:00 Food, Fellowship, and 1968 Karaoke/Open Mic (Song List Included)

The NAACP and BLM MS will be available to sign up any new activists!

Community Service hours may be awarded through United Way’s Get Connected Program https://unitedwaysems.galaxydigital.com/need/detail/?need_id=652002
