First Baptist Church Hall
Bedford Embraces Diversity Martin Luther King Jr. Day breakfast
Bedford Embraces Diversity is sponsoring its first community Martin Luther King Jr. Day breakfast on Monday morning, January 16, beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the First Baptist Church hall, 153 Concord Road.
The public event, entitled “Celebrating MLK’s Vision Together,” will feature remarks from a variety of speakers on Dr. King’s principles and values, and how they continue to apply to society today.
Among the confirmed speakers are Kyle Draper, Bedford resident and sports broadcasting personality; Reginald Nichols, affirmative action officer at Middlesex Community College; and Chief of Police Robert Bongiorno. Other participants will include a high school student, and a resident who personally experienced Dr. King’s influence.
Representatives of all of the town’s institutions, including most churches, Middlesex Community College, Hanscom Air Force Base, the Veterans hospital, and local government will be attending. There will also be a musical component to the program.
The board of Bedford Embraces Diversity, the community-based organization committed to increasing awareness and understanding of diversity, felt that this new event would serve as an opportunity to reinforce Dr. King’s messages of justice and equality in our community.
There will be a nominal admission charge of $5. For reservations, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Marilou Barsam (781-271-9798) or Tricia Anderson (781-538-4690).”
