The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commission of Mid-Michigan held its signature luncheon Monday, Jan. 20, at the Lansing Center, as part of the 35th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Celebration.
This year’s theme for the event was “There comes a time when silence is betrayal,” a quote from Dr. King.
The featured speaker was Andrew Aydin, a New York Times best-selling author who co-authored U.S. Rep. John Lewis’ graphic memoir, “MARCH.” Aydin is a top aide to Lewis, who was unable to attend. The event also featured entertainment and scholarship presentations.
