FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 7, 2021
THE GLOUCESTER MEETINGHOUSE FOUNDATION PRESENTS THE FIFTH ANNUAL CELEBRATION FOR MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. DAY ONLINE
The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation Presents the Fifth Annual Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day called Listening to Generations of Local Voices. The online event will premiere on Monday, January 18, 2021 at 2 p.m. on the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation YouTube channel and will be available anytime afterwards on YouTube in case you miss the premiere.
The presentation is a collage assembled from videos of Cape Ann residents interwoven with excerpts from speeches by Dr. King and John Lewis. It will honor MLK, who lived his beliefs that all men are created equal and that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. It will also remind us as John Lewis did, to remain persistent and continue to listen to younger generations as our country faces systemic racism.
We hope the video will inspire everyone to imagine what it must be like to be in the shoes of “the other” and to be humbled by what we don’t know. More information is available at www.gloucestermeetinghouse.org where you will find a link to the video, or simply go to YouTube and search for “Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation, MLK Day Celebration 2021.”
I saw that Pat D. and GMG Jim did a post with a short video showing turkeys in Magnolia. It reminded me that I had had a run in with those very same turkeys just a few days earlier. They were definitely stopping traffic and had no care in the world that cars were trying to get by.
I’d been wanting to get a shot of the decorated Schooner Adventure from the water side, so off we went to give it a try. This was taken from the North Shore Art Association lot. I am not settled on which view I prefer so I am sharing both. I love the skyline and the clouds.
