Tina Terry, Co-Director of Diversity at BSCTC stated, “We are delighted that this event, centered on hope, is quickly growing with the great help of our partners. It is a very important time for our communities in Central Appalachia to come together and experience the lessons Dr. King instilled in the collective minds of our country over sixty years ago. His philosophies regarding equality, poverty, and unity are fundamental to our democracy-- always.”
