MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. WALK SET FOR MONDAY IN TWENTYNINE PALMS

Civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. will be honored tomorrow across the country and here in the Morongo Basin in Twentynine Palms. Reporter Andrew Dieleman invites you to join the celebration…

“I have a dream.”

The celebrated civil rights leader, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is perhaps best known for his unforgettable speech at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., in 1964.

“A dream rooted in the American Dream.”

Commemorating Dr. King’s birthday, which is celebrated Monday, January 15, the Twentynine Palms Bible Baptist Church will hold its 18th annual march.

“That one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed.”

The one-mile march celebration starts promptly at 8 a.m. at Little Church of the Desert, 6079 Adobe Road and ends at Palms Southern Baptist Church, 5285 Adobe Road. Following the march at 9 a.m. will be a program with local speakers and music, and free refreshments.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL men are created equal.”

The public is invited to join in the march and attend the program.
