“A Day of Service – Celebration of Worship”
Sunday, January 13, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Bethel A.M.E. Church, 600 North Cedar Street, North Little Rock, AR 72114
Keynote Speaker, Isaac Farris (the nephew of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)
Little Rock, AR — Isaac Farris Jr., nephew of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will be the keynote speaker at the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission's "A Day of Service – Celebration of Worship" on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013, 5:00 PM, at Bethel AME, 600 North Cedar St. in North Little Rock.
The celebration focuses on alleviating the reference to Sunday as the most segregated day in America. One of Dr. King's visions was to influence people of all races to worship together at church services, ignore race and see each other as human beings.
Farris, former head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, will emphasize not only the importance of people of all races worshipping together, but also the need for all people to focus on the betterment of humanity ... just as his uncle would have wanted to see.
Farris' powerful message is sure to enlighten audience members to make a difference in their community and in others. For more information, please contact the MLK Jr. Commission at (501) 683-1300.
