ST. PETERSBURG — In light of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s quest for peace and harmony, the foundation of his spiritually charged and inspiring messages was his thirst for education. It is chronicled that the Drum Major of Justice was an avid reader and knowledgeable of a wide range of topics. His faith and studiousness positioned him to be one of the most educated men of his time.
Legacy-56, a 501(c) (3) organization whose mission is to remember, reclaim and restore the importance of cultural and spiritual awareness in African-American communities, sponsored a reading workshop as part of their MLK Day of Service project last Saturday.
More than 70 people filled the community room at the James Weldon Johnson Community Library to participate in the “Read to Remember, Remember to Read” project.
