MLK page, video worth seeing on NewsOK

Photographer Sarah Phipps spent some time last week getting content organized for a special presentation on Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.

The holiday was yesterday, and we unveiled the project for our typically high audience on Monday morning.

The centerpiece of the project is Sarah’s video of students at Millwood Arts Academy reciting King’s historic speech. That video is worth a click, if nothing else. I’ll guarantee this – it’s impossible to watch that video and not feel happier when it’s over than when it began. Impossible.

Sarah has also put together two slideshows about businesses and people that she found an featured along Martin Luther King Ave. in Oklahoma City. The first slideshow is from Lincoln Senior Center at 4712 N. MLK Ave. The second slideshow is from Carican Flavors at 4701 N. MLK Ave.

She also produced a photo gallery to go along with a series of articles covering the holiday in Oklahoma. You can see it all in one place on our MLK holiday page.
