Community Leaders Honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

JANUARY 15, 2005 -- In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King's vision, Wilmington leaders of all races and religions gathered to promote tolerance in our community.

The Ministerial Round Table was held Sunday afternoon at First Baptist Church. The roundtable consists of a group of clergy who encourage anti-racism throughout the community.

This year's speaker was Reverend Lisa Yebuah, a pastor from Millbrook United Methodist Church in Raleigh. It's the first year a young African American woman was chosen to preach at the event.
