Events to mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Oklahoma City
Church services, a parade and a prayer breakfast are among events planned Saturday through Monday to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Oklahoma City.
Activities based on the theme “Challenges Beyond The Dream” are planned for Oklahoma City’s observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, said Roosevelt Milton, vice chairman of the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Coalition.
Milton said he is confident Monday’s weather will cooperate for the parade and other events in honor of the civil rights leader who was slain in 1968.
