Annual Martin Luther King Conference Saturday in New Haven

NEW HAVEN - The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Conference will hold its annual community meeting from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Wexler-Grant School, 55 Foote St.

“Visions of the Dream” is the theme for this year’s conference, which was chosen by organizers to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the “I Have a Dream “ speech, which King delivered at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963.

“We are excited about the conference and usually hold the conference on the federal holiday, but due to the presidential inauguration we had to schedule the event for Saturday,” said conference Chairwoman [Member of Theta Epsilon Omega Chapter] Sondi Jackson.

“The comprehensive conference is a collaboration of civic, fraternal, religious and community organizations from the Greater New Haven area for the purpose of reflecting on the past while seeking the promise of tomorrow,” Jackson said.

For more information, call Jackson at 203 494-1635.
