Arlington will be holding its 42nd annual tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. next weekend.

The event is being held at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center Auditorium (3501 Second St. S.) on Sunday, Jan. 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. It will feature a keynote address from Rev. Walter E. Fauntroy, a local civil rights leader who worked with Dr. King, as well as musical performances and other entertainment.

The organizers need volunteers to help make the event a success. They’re looking for greeters, green room monitors and an artist to assist with the production. Contact Milada Weaver at 703-228-4730 if you’re interested in volunteering, or see more information about the opportunity here.

    Oh man I wish I was going to be in town for this! What an inspirational man! His dedication as a lifelong Republican should set the example for others to follow!

      Yeah, so? I probably would have been a Republican back then, and he probably wouldn’t be a Republican today.

      I am inspired by his words and deeds, not which party he supported.
