Greensboro Human Rights Commission MLK Memorial
January 18 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
In light of the pandemic, the Greensboro Human Rights Commission is hosting a virtual MLK Memorial event in place of the annual breakfast. A free video production honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy airs at 9 am Monday, January 18, on Greensboro Television Network, Facebook, and the City of Greensboro’s YouTube channel. The theme is “Women in the Movement,” featuring an all-female line up of program participants, including keynote speakers Shirley Frye and Zitty Nxumalo and performers Synthia Green and The Poetry Project.
Local civil rights leaders will also be featured in a short video entitled, “I Am the Four,” honoring the legacy of the A&T University students who participated in the lunch counter sit-ins and highlighting women who played a significant role.
