We commemorate the life and ideals of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This event is sponsored by the Grant Chapel Lay Organization. We invite everyone in the community to celebrate Dr. King’s legacy. Our theme “Keeping the dream alive: A day ON, not a day OFF!” urges us to dedicate ourselves to completing the substantial work remaining to create a fair, equitable and inclusive society. Dr. King had a profound impact on our country – and the world -- inspiring us to examine our humanity and emphasizing the importance of love, nonviolent activism and shared community. The program, emceed by Pamelya Herndon, executive director of the Southwest Women’s Law Center and co-host of “Train To Glory,” includes a speaker, recognition of supporters, scholarship presentations and musical selections by a city-wide men’s choir created for this event under the direction of Vincent Baty, a prominent musician and producer in the Albuquerque gospel music world. Our guest speaker is The Right Reverend Reginald T. Jackson, presiding bishop of the Twentieth Episcopal District comprised of Malawi and Zimbabwe in Africa. As a pastor in New Jersey for 33 years, Bishop Jackson inspired and led projects for community development. His work for civil rights resulted in legislation to remedy injustice, and he has been repeatedly named among the top 25 most influential people in New Jersey. Thus, he is well qualified to talk about “keeping the dream alive.”Generous corporations, organizations and individuals have funded scholarships to be awarded to a group of bright, talented and eager high school seniors. Breakfast tickets are now available. Donations are $30- for adults and $20.00 for youth 12 years of age and younger. Organizations and/or individuals may reserve a table for ten for $300.00. If you prefer a fruit plate instead of the usual breakfast fare, specify it when you purchase your tickets. For tickets please contact Galvin Brown at (505) 550-3749 or email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to greeting you at the breakfast.
