Around the country and the world Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is remembered as a man a leader and an inspiration.
Monday night at the Unity Celebration, a very special guest who embodies Martin Luther King’s vision was joined by hundreds in honoring his legacy.
The keynote speaker was none other than Spartanburg’s own Vicky Free who is now the executive vice president of BET.
Free says she couldn’t have done it without holding Dr. King’s words of wisdom close to her heart.
“Dr. King’s dream is an inspiration, but it’s a challenge to all of us, because what he did in his day, made a path for all of us to do what we need to do to make our communities better.”
Spartanburg’s Mayor Junie White was also in attendance.
