MLK: Legacy, Blessings and Reflection

A couple of years ago myself and and events promoter in the DC area created a magazine called MUSINGS. The first issue centered around Legacy... What will you leave your descendants once you transitioned from this earth? We posed the question because some of our peers hadn't given extensive thought about what their mark would be on the world. The response ranged from finances to green and livable communities. This week the long overdue monument for Martin Luther King Jr. will be unveiled, a champion for peace. This week I have really reexamined the Legacy I will leave. It is growing and changing daily but for sure it is in the works.

Special thank you to Charneice Fox Richardson for joining us in the parlor to discuss The MLK Streets Project. We are excited for her endeavor and look forward to attending this weekend after the unveiling!

Happy to have been your DIVA for the day, Kimberly C. Gaines. Support the Arts check out the playlist below and buy the artist's music!
