MLK Ceremony

Last evening at the site of the new MKL Statue in Gainsboro, a ceremony was held commemorating the 40th anniversary of the day Dr. King was murdered. It was a solemn occasion attended by a diverse group of Roanokers.

The keynote speaker was Rev. Kenneth Wright of First Baptist Church in Gainsboro. He delivered wonderful words that spoke to the importance of unity and equality. Others spoke, including Mayor Nelson Harris, Mac Macadden, Jeff Artis, Perneller Chubb Wilson, Bob Goodlatte and others.
