In honor of the King Holiday, the state’s Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission will host its annual 2014 Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Celebration “A Day of Service — A Day On, Not A Day Off” at 11 a.m. Monday at the Pine Bluff Convention Center.
Isaac Farris (Dr. King’s nephew) is the keynote speaker. He served as the ninth president of the Atlanta-based Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Farris is the son of King’s sister, Christine King Farris.
A schedule from Gov. Mike Beebe’s lists him as one of the speakers for the event.
This event is free and open to the public and is sponsored in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Free transportation will be provided by SEAT all day for the MLK holiday.
