Martin Luther King Celebration - Jan. 19

The Winston County Branch of the NAACP will celebrate the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday on Saturday, January 19, 2019. This year’s program will be held in the Court Room of the Winston County Court House. The speaker will be Mr. Kevin Myles, NAACP Regional Director. The theme for this year’s event is
“Defeat Hate-VOTE”.

One of the main events for our 2019 celebration is a parade through the City of Louisville ending at the Court House. Participants will line up at 10:00 a.m. at the Louisville Coliseum for the parade, which will start promptly at 11:00 a.m. The parade entry fee is $5.00, and we are asking all entries be decorated. A parade registration form is attached for your convenience. Those interested in participating in the parade should contact Brenda Johnson at 662-773-5209 or Letitia Jackson at 662-803-2956 for information.

There will be a short program starting at 12:00 noon following the parade at the Court Room of the Winston County Court House, Louisville, MS. We look forward to the entire community coming out to help celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
