MLK Jr. Day Community Event (Jan. 18)

The City of Greensboro’s Human Rights Commission will honor Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy with a free video production airing at 9 a.m. Monday, Jan. 18, on Greensboro Television Network, Facebook and the City’s YouTube channel. The theme is “Women in the Movement,” featuring keynote speakers Shirley Frye and Zitty Nxumalo and performers Synthia Green and The Poetry Project. 

Local civil rights leaders also will be featured in a short video, “I Am the Four,” honoring the legacy of the North Caolina A&T State University students who participated in the lunch counter sit-ins. Anyone in the community working on improving human and civil rights is encouraged to share their “why” and work on this movement throughout the month with the hashtag #Iamthe4.
