Monday To-Do: 'A Day of Service'

Posted By on Mon, Jan 18, 2010 at 8:54 AM


10 a.m., M.L. Harris Auditorium, Philander Smith College. Free.

If you get the day off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, what better way to observe the holiday than by attending this program presented by the MLK Commission and Little Rock's vibrant historically black college. Much like Philander's slate of nationally known guest speakers (Terrell Owens is coming Feb. 9), the program features a diverse line-up that includes college president Dr. Walter M. Kimbrough (some deep pockets need to start moving on his “Big Idea” in our Native's Guide issue), MLK Commission chairman Phillip Kaplan, the MLK Memorial Unity Choir and, giving the keynote address, former UA basketball coach Nolan Richardson. And take the bus. Central Arkansas Transit offers free bus rides all day long in honor of the King Holiday.
