Why Black People Tend to Shout: a Dr. King Read-in - On Sunday, January 14 after coffee hour (around 11:45am in the Parish House), there will be a FREE multi-generational community "read-in" to celebrate and illuminate the social justice ministry of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as the poetry and prose of African American writers, rappers, lyricists, and spoken word artists. So bring your favorite three minutes of poetry, spoken word, essay, song/rap lyrics, biography, historical writing, or fiction written by/about an African American to share with the community.
