Local NAACP branches are honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
On Sunday, the San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria-Lompoc, and Ventura County organizations held a virtual premiere presentation of "At the Table with Dr. King,” performed by More Than Music and produced by the Mizel Museum.
The online event was an hour long, featuring live music, poetry, and art to bring to life Dr. King's "A Knock at Midnight" speech.
President of NAACP San Luis Obispo County, Stephen Vines, and Women in the NAACP Chair, Cheryl Vines, say it's more important than ever to highlight Dr. King's role in the American civil rights movement.
"We need to make sure that America lives up to its responsibility, that justice is for all.. not just justice for people who have money, not just justice for people who are light-skinned, not just justice for people who are male, not just justice for people in a whole different criteria. [Dr. King] was a man who changed the world," said Vines.
