I appreciated the linked article by Jay Youngdahl in the East Bay Express, a promising and inspiring statement, in my view, showing our great strides and our on-going challenges – a fitting commemoration to the slain civil rights leader and hero.
Twin Cities Public television, on-line, notes that the General Mills Foundation and the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) will be presenting the 24th annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Breakfast, presumably on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (Monday, January 20, 2014). The breakfast is touted as an opportunity to celebrate Dr. King’s legacy of service and be inspired. The website does not appear to say where the breakfast is or when it is. The website appears, however, to include a link to “YouTube Live” so one could presumably watch the even live, though the website does not make that clear.
The event’s keynote speaker will be Donna Brazile, a veteran Democratic political strategist, adjunct professor, author and syndicated columnist.
