Happy Birthday Dr. King….Thank you!! We honor your legacy in Oklahoma
The Martin Luther King Celebration continues. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. legacy has been celebrated in Oklahoma over the past few days!
He has been honored by word and by music. The Martin Luther King city-wide church celebration took place yesterday at St. John Missionary Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. Dr. Lee E. Cooper, Jr. of Prospect Church in Oklahoma City reminded us of what Dr. King stood and died for…..that we should honor his legacy.
The Martin Luther King Breakfast celebration took place this morning. Angela Monson – University of Oklahoma Health Science Center and Lt. Paco Balderrama – Oklahoma City Police Department F.A.C.T program and Rodney Farrow - an OU student shared in the dream. The Del City High Daybreak choir entertained with Negro Spirituals. Matt Hamilton and Albert GrayEagle, Flutist shared in prose and music. Also, Janice Francis Smith shared in a ballad dedicated to Dr. King and Sam Kahre, a 13 year -old Cellist from the Bagwell School of Music shared a couple of musical selections to include Amazing Grace.
The attendees at all of these celebrations were very diverse in demographics, color, religion, creed..etc….The celebrations were such a great opportunity to reflect in Dr. King’s “I have a Dream” speech in the excerpt below:
“we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words”
Dr. King…we say to you today that we are joining hands in your honor!
