Commemorating the achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Dayton Human Relations Council will host the annual Youth World House Summit, an event designed to increase understanding and appreciation for the civil land human rights movement.
The event will talk place at Grace United Methodist Church at 1001 Harvard Blvd. on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This year’s theme: “Understanding Social Equality.” Admission is free.
The celebration is an opportunity to reflect on the life and legacy of Dr. King and to inspire youth to take action and create positive change in their communities. In addition to the historical relevance of the civil rights movements, presenters will explore contemporary issues regarding race, social justice, and diversity.
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “World House,” the Dayton event will also celebrate the cultural diversity of the community with world music, dance spoken word and food. Youth will have the opportunity to help create banners to be used during Dayton’s MLK march and rally.
