Wilmington Commemorates Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. With Series Of Events

To mark the observance of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., a series of events took place in Wilmington on January 20th. 

The events started with the Chemours Day of Service, kicked off by Mayor Purzycki. This annual event is made possible by the City of Wilmington partnering with The Chemours Company, and is designed to engage youth in education, fitness, and service. The event took place in the Sixers Fieldhouse, where over 100 children aged 6 to 12 gathered for breakfast at 9.a.m, and then rotated through 3 separate rooms for 45-minute information sessions.

Station one consisted of Wilmington’s famous STEM Queen, Jacqueline Means. She conducted interactive science experiments designed to get children interested in STEM. Station two was occupied by Titus Sports, who had the kids engage in various fitness activities. Finally, station three hosted a discussion about the significance of MLK, and the importance of giving back to the community.

Another event that took place last monday was the 8th Annual MLK Peace March, hosted by Westside Grows and the Wilmington Peacekeepers. The event started with a street cleanup co-hosted by the Delaware Nature Society. The march followed at 2p.m., which started at the Dickerson Center and continued to the West End Neighborhood House.

The Delaware Art Museum also sponsored a Day of Service event. The public had free access to come celebrate the legacy of Dr. King through art and service in partnership with One Village Alliance and Raising Kings.
