Member Saturday: Coffee and Conversation | Civil Rights and Our Community
Members only. Registration required.
Join us as we kick off our annual Dr. Martin Luther King Weekend. Engage in dialogue with community members, learn about the legacy of Dr. King, and enjoy some exclusive member perks.
Grab coffee and a light breakfast before heading to the members’ priority seating area for the first reading and discussion of the weekend at 11:30 a.m. Hear excerpts from Dr. King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” and discuss the passages’ relevance today.
