Around the nation today people are celebrating the birth of Martin Luther King. A crowd of old and young, black and white, sang to welcome in the holiday to remember Dr. King. They met in the art gallery on the second floor of Binghamton’s City Hall.
Talia Moore owns a multicultural theater company in Binghamton called DT Productions and was the event’s keynote speaker.
Moore says the holiday serves to remind people of Martin Luther King’s legacy and the work that still needs to be done.
“There are some many kids in our community who need mentors. There are so many properties in our area, like the north side, who needs revitalization. We are people of the community and so it is our responsibility to make sure that our community is up and thriving.”
