GALLERY: Solidarity in Diversity: Martin Luther King Celebration in Three Rivers

(Deborah Haak-Frost|Watershed Voice)

Over 50 people gathered with signs in-hand to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in downtown Three Rivers Monday.

The annual Solidarity in Diversity: Martin Luther King Celebration looked dramatically different this year due to COVID-19 safety concerns. Instead of a march, followed by a meal and a program, participants had to settle for a socially distanced downtown vigil complete with music and the seemingly ever present sound of supportive passerby car horns.

While speeches were limited and time was short (the event lasted about 40 minutes), the energy and enthusiasm of attendees was not in short supply. Watershed Voice recorded yesterday’s proceedings on Facebook Live, which can be viewed here, and the gallery below was composed and curated by Deborah Haak-Frost.
