SALS to host MLK Day event Monday

BEARDS FORK — Southern Appalachian Labor School (SALS) in Beards Fork will host a program for Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 21, beginning at 12 noon. A luncheon will be provided. The speaker of the hour will be Joseph Bundy, from the Humanities Council in Charleston.

Bundy will portray Martin Robison Delany, an African-American and a West Virginian who was one of the most important black abolitionists in the Civil War period. In addition, Delany, a physician, was one of the first three blacks admitted to Harvard Medical School, an author and the highest ranking black commissioned officer in the Civil War.

Also participating in the program will be The Brown Singers from Montgomery.

SALS invites everyone to come and be a part of the Civil War era as portrayed by Joseph Bundy, which helped inspire Martin Luther King Jr. to the Freedom March and his “I Have a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial 100 years later.

For more information, please call SALS at 304-779-2772.
