Tonight, you can celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Day at Trinity Lutheran Church.

 The Martin Luther King Holiday Commission is hosting it’s annual MLK community celebration in Bismarck. It’s a local non-profit that promotes the life of Dr. King. 

The event is free to the public and will have music, food, and special guest Joseph McNeil Jr. He’s the son of one of the four African American men who sat in at the Woolworth counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, where they were refused service due to the color of their skin.

“We need hope. We can live six days without food, three days without water, and maybe two minutes without air. But we can’t live without Hope and he brought hope. Regardless of our race. What King’s message did was it gave you that place somewhere inside where you are all worried to death where you can rest,” said Bill Patrie, President of the Martin Luther King Commission.

The commission hopes to celebrate his legacy year round with more events and education opportunities. 

The event will last from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m.
