Rediscovering Lost Values

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center, along with the Dallas Civil Rights Museum, will host a panel discussion entitled “Rediscovering Lost Values” on Thursday, February 28, 2019, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the MLK, Jr. Community Center (2922 MLK Boulevard, Bldg. A). This year’s theme was taken from a speech Dr. King delivered in Detroit in 1954.

Panelists include Matt Houston, President of the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce; Rev. L. Robin Murray, Assistant Minister of Children’s Ministry at Joy Tabernacle AME Church; and Dale Long, member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and Big Brothers Big Sisters National Partnership Chairman. The moderator is Norma Adams Wade, Journalist from the Dallas Morning News. There will also be a special presentation by Millicent Rone, President of the American Airlines African American Diversity Network.

“We hope attendees will be inspired by our presenters to continue to move Dr. King’s dream forward through action, on a sustained basis,” says Emma Rodgers, curator of the Dallas Civil Rights Museum.

The Dallas Civil Rights Museum will also be open for tours and information. This event is free and open to the public.
