BIRTHDAYS OF THE MONTH


This month, we will commemorate the birth (January 15, 1929) and lifetime work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As always, it will be celebrated in grand fashion. On Friday, January 16th, we will spend the day hearing his speeches, watching videos about his life, singing freedom songs, and having a mock “sit-in” and freedom march. Please read Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech "I Have A Dream" starting on page 4. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday is a nationwide holiday; celebrated on Monday, January 17th.



We also celebrate the birthday of Mr. Johnnie Wilson; born on January 3, 1919. He was a community leader, activist and Roots neighbor. Mr. Wilson served on the Roots ALC Council of Elders and the Roots Public Charter Board of Trustees. He had been a faithful benefactor to Roots since 1990. Our beloved “Baba Wilson” made his Ancestral transition on January 4, 2006
