MLK celebrated at Patrick Henry's Red Hill

A community came together for an amazing breakfast, fantastic singing, phenomenal speakers, and excellent introductions at Patrick Henry's Red Hill "MLK Community Breakfast" to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on January 16. There were 90 guests in attendance. One guest from Lynchburg shared, “Beautiful setting, empowering event, and good food,” while another guest from South Boston said, “Wonderful program and I will certainly come again.” Someone from Halifax wrote, “I really enjoyed the event. The speakers were great, and the food was great.”

Visitors loved witnessing Dr. King's dream come alive. Today his words, “I have a dream that one day little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers" came true. They rang loud at Red Hill's MLK Community Breakfast. The community of black and brown, white, and all creeds came together under one roof to celebrate him.

Takisha Fowlkes, Director of Community Engagement and Programming said, “I can't help but think Dr. King and Patrick Henry would be proud of what happened here today at Red Hill.”
