Lansing Announces Annual MLK Luncheon

 EAST LANSING, MI — Tickets are now available for the Greater
Lansing Area Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Commission’s 26th
Annual MLK Luncheon. The luncheon, held annually to celebrate the life
and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will take place on Monday,
Jan. 17 at 11 a.m. at the Lansing Center, 333 Michigan Ave.

The theme for the 2011 luncheon is “The Legacy Lives On through Action.”

This year’s program will feature keynote speaker Congressman Elijah
H. Cummings, the first African American in Maryland history to be named
Speaker Pro Tem of the Maryland House of Delegates. Congressman Cummings
is a committed youth advocate and has dedicated his life to serving
others. He is often quoted as saying that “our children are the living
messages we send to a future we will never see.” Congressman
Cummings’s profound understanding and commitment to King’s legacy
is an inspiration to us all.

Other highlights of the Jan. 17 program will include the honoring of
middle and high school students who participated and placed in the
Commission’s essay and scholarship program and a number of special
presentations by local talent.
