First Community Interfaith Institute honors MLK on Jan 15


On Saturday, January 15, 2011 at 7:30 pm, at 219 Hamilton Street in Rochester NY,  the National Minister of First Community Interfaith Institute Inc., Minister Lawrance Lee Evans, will give a lecture entitled “Doology Asks for the Real King to Stand Out!”Rev. Dr. King would have been 82 years old this year if he was not assassinated when he was 39 years old.

When a 42 year old seamstress refused to relinquish her bus seat to a white man and was arrested, a bus boycott was called. A young man named Dr. King was elected president to an organization called the Montgomery Improvement Association. The public life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King was born.

We invite the public to hear Minister Lawrance Lee Evans as he addresses many of the misconceptions about King and the movement. Minister Lawrance Lee Evans, the developer of Doology, founder of First Community Interfaith Institute Inc., and financial supporter of the Charles Riley Tutorial Program, will explain how Dr. King's brief life enabled him to be a “drum major for justice."
