Why is it important to remember the great leaders in our lifetime? People come and go like shooting stars – shining with a burst of fury while they’re with us, and slowly fade away from memory. Why then, after almost 50 years after his death, do we still hold Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. up as one of America’s great leaders? This MLK Day weekend, there are two observances of his amazing life and legacy that will give you a glimpse into the answer to this question. Both events are free and open to the public.
