Last year’s tribute to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at Bethlehem Baptist Church.
To remember the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s death on April 4, 1968, a local coalition of faith communities and nonprofits, Ventures in Community (VIC), will sponsor a tribute to him at 2 p.m., Saturday, April 7, at Bethlehem Baptist Church, 7836 Fordson Road, Alexandria.
The event features essays by high school students answering the question, “How to End Racism in America: What Would Dr. King Do?”
Three church choirs will perform, and all in attendance will be asked to recommit to ending racism.
An informal cookie-and-punch reception will follow. The event is free and open to all.
VIC is a community group of about 60 faith communities, nonprofits, and county agencies in the south county area formed 45 years ago to provide volunteer support to the hypothermia shelter at Rising Hope Methodist Mission Church. It holds monthly meetings and sponsors other events. See Ventures in Community – VIC on Facebook.
