'Remember, Celebrate, and Act'
King Observance To Be Held Jan. 14

The NIH commemorative program celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10. The program will feature a keynote address by former Congressman Ronald V. Dellums, musical selections by the Largo High School Choir, and an ethnic litany presented by NIH employees.

Rep. Ronald V. Dellums

Dellums is known as one of the most compelling and articulate speakers to serve in the House. He was the visionary leader of the successful congressional effort to end U.S. support for the apartheid regime of South Africa and among the first to recognize a growing responsibility for the United States to participate in international peace operations. He will be joined by the 160-member Largo High School choir, known for its performances of gospel music, as well as classical, pop and blues.

The theme for this year's observance is "Remember, Celebrate, and Act." Overflow seating will be available. For more information contact Sharon Ricks, 496-9898, or O.H. Laster, 496-6302.
