CSM to honor Martin Luther King Jr. at upcoming events

Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King Jr.

The commission, now in its 25th year, is also hosting community service events across the state throughout the week.

The Henry County NAACP will kick off its celebrations with a prayer breakfast at 10 a.m. on Saturday. The event is in collaboration with the Howard County Police Department and is co-sponsored by local companies BithEnergy and PRISM Compliance Management.

Martin Luther King Day provides the flawless opportunity to talk with kids about justice, service, and working together for positive change.

Immediately following the program, attendees are invited to participate in the annual National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) March, sponsored by the Hickory Branch of the NAACP. "There will be artistic interpretations of one of Dr. King's quotes performed by multiple students in the areas of poetry, music, dance, and art".

In addition to Sunday's program, CSM is supporting the local efforts in Charles, St. Mary's and Calvert counties on annual prayer breakfasts January 15 and their associated activities.

Featuring kid-friendly workshops and engaging activities for preschool to middle school-aged children, this year's celebration will focus on the many ways children were part of the civil rights struggle and the power of children today to help change the world for the better.

BithEnergy MLK Unity 5K: 6940 Gateway Drive Columbia, 8 a.m., on-site registration begins at 7 a.m. "Exploring Racism and Privilege in Our Community", from 2-5 p.m. January 14 at Middleham and St. Peter's Parish Hall in Lusby.
