King’s Legacy Lives on in Service and Fellowship

Speakers at Rockville's 2024 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

The City of Rockville honored the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. in January with a week of service activities and the city’s 52nd annual celebration of the civil rights leader. The celebration at Rockville High School included a film screening of “Finding Fellowship,” which recounts how three racially segregated churches in Gaithersburg merged in the months following King’s death. The celebration included a discussion of the film with (L-R) Rockville Human Rights Commission member Amina Shafi-Rogers; the Rev. Gerard A. Green, who is featured in the film; and Kisha Davis, the film’s co-producer. Find Rockville 11’s coverage of the celebration at youtube.com/cityofrockville and learn more at www.rockvillemd.gov/mlk.
