Happy Birthday Dr. King!

Happy Birthday Dr. King!

Facilitators Mike Rauch and John White celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. Day by attending a memorial service at Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church. Dr. King was a pastor at the church, which played a central role in the Montgomery Bus Boycotts. After the memorial service, Mike and John enjoyed a parade on Dexter Avenue that included local schools, organizations, regular everyday folks and even a bus that stopped and picked up passengers along the way.
