posted Jan 14, 2013, 7:55 AM by Carolyn Desrosiers

For the past 22 years, The Fox Cities Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration, sponsored by Toward Community and the Lawrence University Office of Multicultural Affairs, would not have existed without the support of many Fox Valley organizations. This year’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration will take place on the 2013 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday on Monday, January 21, 2013 at the Lawrence University Memorial Chapel on College Avenue in Appleton, beginning at 6:30 p.m.  

Back by popular demand, this year’s keynote speaker will be Rev. Wanda J. Washington. Rev. Washington is the retired minister from Grace United Church of Christ in Milwaukee.Reverend Washington will inspire us in the message that “Building a Just World”. We look forward to hearing vocal performances by Lawrence University student Zoie Reams and the Appleton East High Choir. In addition, the program will include winners of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. essay contest who will read their winning essays.

Come and celebrate with us!
