Humanitarian of Year Award ceremony to commemorate legacy of Dr. King

Day is observed on the third Monday in January every year, in memory of the civil rights leader. In 1994, Congress deemed the commemorative holiday a "day of service", according to the Corporation for National and Community Service. And those looking to celebrate in the community in more traditional ways will find walks, celebrations and breakfast events in the spirit of coming together. From 11 a.m.to 3 p.m.

This songfest will continue Sunday night, with Martin Luther King Jr.

Danville Transit will not operate, but Senior Transportation Services will transport dialysis patients to and from the dialysis clinic from 6 a.m.to 6 p.m. Monday.

To end the event, a video will be shown to tribute Dr. King's life, Griffin said.

Admission is free and open to the public. On behalf of IUPUC, she adds, "We look forward to the opportunity hear from students who are now living Dr. King's dream and share in this great day with the residents of Columbus who attend and support this event each year". One student will also receive the Rev. David H. Nunnally Community Service scholarship.

"We know that Dr. King had a dream". Other events held by VCU throughout the week include a blood drive on Wednesday and Thursday, a keynote speech delivered by author and Morehouse College professor Marc Lamont Hill, Ph.D. on Wednesday night, and service events held around the city on Saturday. The event is sponsored by the Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site, and takes place from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Visit handsonrva.org/mlkday for more information.
