Organizers of Martin Luther King, Jr. remembrance say "it is time"
JEFFERSON CITY - People from all around the world come together to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Day. Not only is it a federal reserved holiday, but a time for action and service.
Between four walls of Second Baptist Church in Jefferson City, people gathered to celebrate Dr. King with fellowship, spoken word, song and dance. Even though the actual holiday is Monday, the event was held on Sunday.
The theme of the remembrance celebration was titled "It is Time."
Event coordinator Reverend W.T. Edmonson said it is time to step up and make a difference.
Guest speaker Rabbi Doug Alpert said it is important to fight hate with love.
Edmonson said, the theme was created in response to current events.
