2022 Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Celebration: The Future of the Movement - The Legacy of Dr. King
The Worthington Community celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr on January 17, 2022 for the annual MLK Community Celebration. Because of ongoing COVID-19 concerns, there was no in-person audience for the Celebration. The entire program was streamed live and is now available to watch on-demand here.
Special thanks to the Worthington United Methodist Church, Rev. Lou Seipel and Craig Kramer for providing the live stream and video services for this program.
The 2022 program focused on “The Future of the movement – the legacy of Dr. King” and included readings by several students from Worthington Schools. The program also featured musical performances from the Capriccio choir and Urban Strings Youth Orchestra and previewed the POST NO ILLS exhibition and celebration by artist Lance Johnson that is opening at the McConnell Arts Center in January.
