Ashland Preps For MLK Day
Ashland has come a long way in nearly 100 years. The town that was a hotbed of Ku Klux Klan activity in the 1920s now puts on one of the region's larger celebrations of the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. It's at high noon on the day MLK's birthday is observed, this year on January 21st.
D.L. Richardson has MC'd the event for many years and Gina DuQuenne has helped shape the program for some time, too. They visit the studio with thoughts on Dr. King's legacy and commemoration.
