The MLK Holiday Commission of East Point will host its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebration on January 12-13, 2013, with the theme:


 "Uniting Communities Through Service, As We Celebrate the Dream".  


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday is a day to honor a man who lived his life in service to others. On this day we pay homage to his work toward racial equality and economic justice for all, his commitment to nonviolence, and his stand against war and militarism.  Commission events in East Point will include a youth empowerment workshop with sessions on drugs, gangs, bullying, the judicial system, organized labor and creative writing Saturday, January 12th. On Sunday, January 13th, an Ecumenical program of celebration will be held featuring keynote speaker Dr. Love Henry Whelchel, professor of church history at Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, Ga. The MLK Ecumenical choir will also be performing. Please contact Pat Langford at 404-762-1489 for more information on how you can participate in the MLK Ecumenical Choir, or with further questions regarding the King Holiday celebration.
