In Memoriam: MIK

Nearly 46 years ago a bullet silenced one of the 20th century’s most prolific and well-spoken leaders. In life, King urged people to change their way of thinking and to treat everyone with respect, kindness and fair sensibility. In his passing, the movement and dream that he loved so much and strived to see achieved in his lifetime is now a reality for millions of people living in the U.S. April 4, 2016 will be a somber yet joyful day of remembrance for the fallen hero. This day of remembrance will be marked across the country, including a "Breaking of the Chains" ceremony at the National Civil Rights Museum, which is on the site where King was fatally shot.

In honor of the legacy and many contributions of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, JR, WITIN RADIO would like to share a brief list of activities being offered in memoriam to the slain civil rights leader.
