Virgil Henderson, Harold Coleman, Martha Miranda and Saúl Ostroff participated in MLK Day activities with 18 Pueblo students.
United under the direction of the African American Culture Club we marched from the University of Arizona to Reid Park. Once at the park we were entertained, inspired, and educated on the non violent model of change that MLK modelled. From Reid Park we returned to Pueblo for a Service Project.
This year we remembered Lorraine Lee (1957 – 2007), Pueblo Graduate (1974), who spent her life following Dr. King’s lessons. Ms. Lee advocated for the young, the old, and those who needed housing, medical and basic services. Ms. Lee encourages us to work for change and we are a better Tucson for her work.
