This month, we will commemorate the birth and lifetime work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. At Roots, this is always celebrated in grand fashion. Friday, January 15th we will spend the day hearing his speeches, watching videos about his life, singing freedom songs, and participating in a mock “sit-in” and freedom march. Born January 15, 1929, he was assassinated by James Earl Ray on April 4, 1968. Dr. Martin L. King Jr.’s birthday is a nationwide holiday, celebrated Monday, January 16, 2017.
The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”
Martin L. King, Jr. “A Testament of Hope”
We also celebrate the birthday of our beloved ancestor Mr. Johnie D. Wilson who was born on January 3, 1919 and transitioned on January 4, 2006. He was a community leader, activist and Roots neighbor. Mr. Wilson served on the Roots ALC Council of Elders and was a founding member of the Roots PCS Board of Trustees. Since 1990, until his transition he continued to be a faithful Roots benefactor.
