On Monday, January 21, 2013 we will be performing at Snellville’s City Hall for the Martin Luther King holiday.

Welcome to Arts in Snellville as we bring to our readers the up to date news on what is happening at T2I Entertainment.  On Monday, January 21, 2013 we will be performing at Snellville’s City Hall for the Martin Luther King Day.  This is Snellville’s 2nd annual event, so we are honored to be a part of it and looking forward to a great event.  At the celebration we have special guest, Yewande on the scene.  We also have our own Pink Anthem singing and a dance performance choreographed by Javi Hart with the T2I young performers.  

Mayor Kelly Kautz, the City of Snellville and Elijah Collins of New Jerusalem Baptist Church is proud to present the 2nd Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration called “Unity in the Community” on January 21, 2013.  Here are the details:

It is important to celebrate MLK Day, just as you would Christmas or any holiday in reverence, respect and honor of all the of work that Martin Luther King did to help our society.  MLK Day is about reviving the dream of freedom, equality and unity.  We live this out with being proactive in supporting our communities in which he helped to make a difference in.  So if you are asking how?  Then let’s look at a couple of facts:

Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968)

  • He was a clergyman, activist and prominent leader in the African American Civil Rights Movement.
  • He advanced civil rights with nonviolent civil disobedience.
  • He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott
  •  He led to the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech becoming one of the greatest orators in American history.
  • On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence.   
  • And on January 21, 2013 we celebrate his legacy as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day which was established as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986.

Only to name a few, let us rise up and come together to give honor to who honor is due. Let’s celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for all of his accomplishments. When we have done this, we celebrate ourselves.
