RE:                 Change of Venue for 2014 “6th Annual Statewide Commemorative Vigil and March”                         Invite to the “Nonviolence Youth Summit Part X-LIFE AFTER HATE SERIES”

 

For years, we have carried the tradition of hosting the Commemorative Vigil honoring the life and legacy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the State Capitol.  We are pleased to announce that we are moving the location of this year’s Commemorative vigil from the State Capitol to Harrison City Hall, 116 South Spring Street, Harrison, Arkansas 72601.

 

On Tuesday, April 1, 2014, the first event to kick off this extraordinary celebration is the “Unity Arts Celebration.”  This historic event will take place at The Lyric Theater, 113 West Rush, Harrison, Arkansas 72601 at 6:00 PM. The theme for this event will commemorate The Beatles’ 50th Anniversary, their musical contributions to the Civil Rights Movement and their shared message of love and peace.  All of the performances that evening will reflect a song or album recorded by The Beatles.

 

Immediately following the “Unity Arts Celebration,” we once again commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  We will have a march starting at The Lyric Theater located at 113 West Rush Avenue, Harrison, Arkansas 72601 at 7:15 PM and ending at Harrison City Hall located at 116 South Spring Street, Harrison, Arkansas 72601. Immediately following the march, the “6th Annual Statewide Commemorative Vigil” will begin at Harrison City Hall. Thus, The Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission commemorates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and cordially invites you to be a part of this tradition.

On Wednesday, April 2, 2014, the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission with the assistance of the Arkansas Department of Human Services, will host the “Nonviolence Youth Summit Part X-LIFE AFTER HATE SERIES” at the North Arkansas College Durand Conference Center, 303 N Main, Harrison, AR 72601, from 7:30 AM to 2:00 PM. This event is free and open the public, but prior confirmation of attendance is requested. Free lunch will be provided.
