Martin Luther King Tribute on Sunday
In memory of Martin Luther King Jr.'s life and to celebrate his legacy of equality, the Maysville/Mason County NAACP encourages everyone in the community to participate in its third-annual Martin Luther King Jr. March. King was known for his peaceful means of portraying his message. One such device he used was marches which allowed people to stand up and be noticed, without resorting to violence.
The Maysville Martin Luther King Jr. March will begin at Bethel Baptist Church at 2 p.m., Sunday, and will continue to Scott United Methodist Church. A trolley will be provided for those who would like to participate but cannot march.
At the end of the walk, everyone is invited inside Scott United Methodist Church for refreshments and a special program with speaker Dr. George Russell, former pastor of the church, and the founder of the local Martin Luther King Scholarship Fund. Prior to Russell's speech, there will likely be poetry readings and music, as well as refreshments.
