Martin Luther King Day Celebration

Monday, January 15th, 2018, 2:00pm

A rare opportunity to gather in community to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King, learn about persons of color and diverse identities on Cape Ann, and rededicate ourselves to the American creed that all persons are created equal.

Gloucester’s 2nd Annual Martin Luther King Day Celebration, an afternoon featuring first-person presentations by Fish Tales of the Gloucester Writers Center, about Native American history, the Slave Trade as related to Gloucester’s commerce, the Abolitionist Movement and present-day issues regarding civil rights, refugees, religious liberty and world conflicts. Silent concluding procession, tolling the Meetinghouse Paul Revere Bell for freedom.
