MLK Day is not only a recognition of Martin Luther King’s martyrdom in the struggle for racial equity but it is a reminder of how far we still have to go to achieve equality. This year’s program includes several different groups, each discussing issues of race and social justice from different perspectives. The quality of these sessions and their potential for enriching future Town discussions and understanding of these issues has led the Committee to extend the length of the program.
