Rising Above in Love, Truth and Goodness - Celebrating MLK Jr.
Activist and civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. would have turned 94 years old on Sunday if he had not been assassinated. At the 5th annual Placer County MLK Jr. Day celebration which took place on Monday, Jan 16th, 2023 at Rocklin's Johnson-Springview Park, hundreds of locals came together to honor the legacy he left behind. The theme of this year's event was “Rising Above in Love, Truth, and Goodness”. It featured readings of Dr. King's speeches, a march, kid-friendly activities, poetry and poster contests with cash prizes for winners, and information booths. Food trucks, vendors, and DJ Madsticks' music were also present.
