In honoring Dr. King


However you prefer to honor your heroes, there’s a free event for you this week in honor of the birth of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Candlelight vigils, rousing sermons, political discussions, community service—a comprehensive list of events is in our A&E calendar and we’ve highlighted a few as well. Among the luminaries in town to deliver those rousing speeches is King’s youngest daughter, the Rev. Bernice A. King, who will speak Thursday, Jan 15 at 11 a.m. at the Stewart Theatre at N.C. State’s Talley Student Center.

UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke both offer a week of events, including an oratorical contest, film screenings and choral celebrations.

If you do nothing else on Monday, make sure you're registered to vote--it's the best birthday present you could give him. Go online to the N.C. State Board of Elections and do it now!
