Fort McCoy celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Fort McCoy celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day

But Morales and others were critical of President Donald Trump and his words and actions regarding race, illegal-immigration, and the fate of Confederate symbols.

The president was also reportedly defending his administration's decision to send some El Salvadorans and Haitians, who are in the US due to quake disasters, back to their countries of origin after their temporary protected status expires.

"When I first heard the words reported, initially, it was very disheartening, especially since it was around the anniversary of the quake of 2010 that hit Haiti".

Almost 50 years ago, the world lost one of its greatest heroes. Just seeing the images, and my relatives that were in Haiti, just hearing their accounts of how horrific it was and loved ones that they actually lost. So we must help time.

We are really focusing on the civic en- gagement initiative.

"First of all, Haiti is an extremely attractive country with some of the most lovely, most creative, most vibrant people in the world that you'll ever meet".

"Most interesting to me was what he accomplished when he was still living, despite going through jail about 30 times", Fletcher said.

"To be completely honest with you, it was surreal".

King's speech comes after he spoke out against Trump's alleged crude words to describe Haiti and African countries and suggesting more us immigrants should come from places like Norway. "While organizing clothes, I kept in mind the values of selflessness and sacrifice true leaders like Dr. King held", Scott said. "Having the opportunity to be of service to those who've had their fair share of adversity, is just a real humbling opportunity".

"In order to 'make America what it ought to be, ' as Dr. King fervently encouraged those Memphis sanitation workers years ago, we must strive to be all that he was - activists, change seekers, community pillars, faith leaders, peaceful protesters and followers of Christ". "I certainly regret the fact that there may have been too much security and too many detours". "I want to become a scientist, I like engineering, putting stuff together".

According to Laura Greenspan, who is in charge of the organization's toy donations, The Closet gets an average of $50,000 to $60,000's worth of clothes, but they especially need assistance to organize the massive amount of toys donated every year, which is where the Martin Luther King Celebration volunteers come in. Latinos walked with Vietnamese, American Indians marched alongside Sikhs from India and African Americans walked with everybody. "It's always been something I wanted to do", he said. "It's the least I can do to read to some kids, doing something I love".

"I don't know that anybody's pleased with it", Thompson said. I have a skill that God's blessed me with.

"This event is to inform people about Martin Luther King Jr. and to just open up a more social aspect for the sorority", Carney said.

"Basquiat has been a huge influence on me".

The commemoration will continue Thursday at Krannert Uncorked, a night of music and performances by the U of I Hip-Hop Collective, led by music professor Rudolf Haken and the Black Chorus, fronted by Ollie Watts-Davis.
