Martin Luther King

  • MLK Day events participants include Geneva Craig, who lived in Selma and was tear-gassed on Bloody Sunday, and Mary Liuzzo Lilleboe, whose mother died when she went South to help. Both will speak in Grants Pass. We also welcome Precious Yamaguchi from the Ashland celebration, Bittin Duggan and Danny Stoddard from Coos Bay, and Reverend Ryan Scott from Grants Pass, for conversations about what's been accomplished... and what remains.
  • The Oregon Remembrance Project works to remind the state of its racist past, with an eye toward improvement and reconciliation. Gabi Johnsen and Taylor Stewart are key players in the effort, and in observing the coming birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Grants Pass.
