This year’s program includes the inspiring speaker Pastor Willie Dwayne Francois III, senior pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Pleasantville, New Jersey, and author of Silencing White Noise: Six Practices to Overcome Our Inaction on Race. In addition to Pastor Francois, the program includes dance and choral performances from local youth, and readings from interfaith leaders. This year marks the return of the Volunteer Fair in the CHS cafeteria immediately following the Observance. As always, the community is invited to participate in the Luminary Project—an uplifting and inspirational close to this important day. Luminary kits will be available for a donation in the weeks leading up to MLK Day at local businesses.
