Democratic Party of Virginia Celebrates Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
RICHMOND, Va - Today, the Democratic Party of Virginia celebrates Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, which this year commemorates what would have been Dr. King's 90th birthday.
“On this commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 90th birthday, I find that the lessons he preached speak louder than ever,” said DPVA Chairwoman Susan Swecker. “As we reflect on his memory today, we ought to remember and embolden the vision of prosperity and equality for all Americans that he fought so hard to achieve. In spite of the short time Dr. King was on this Earth, his impact has and will continue to be felt throughout the World for eternity – for that his dream lives on.”
