What Would Martin Do?
Yesterday, we celebrated a legendary leader who challenged our nation to dream. The ADA Education Fund will celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and legacy at our upcoming “What Would Martin Do?” annual forum in Washington, D.C.
WHEN: Thursday, January 26, 2012, 3:00 p.m.
This free forum will feature a panel of distinguished speakers addressing the question of how the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., might approach critical policy issues facing the country in the 21st century. Audience participation is encouraged in a Q&A section.
The winning essay from the “What Would Martin Do?” national essay contest will also be read aloud by this year’s winner, Marc Brenman, of Kensington, Maryland. Read the winning essays here.
