A Commemoration of the Life of Rev. MLK

Glenwood Lutheran Church will host a commemoration of the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Sunday, January 15, 2023 at 4:00 p.m.  Glenwood is located at 2545 Monroe Street, adjacent to the Toledo Museum of Art.

Together, We Can Be the Dream is the theme of the program that seeks to propel us toward the vision of racial justice and equity that Dr. King so desired.

Gloria Dickerson will be the guest speaker. Gloria was directly involved with the integration of the public school system in Mississippi in the mid-1960s. Local poet, Ophelia Thompson will also be on hand to share her creative insights.

The Musical Coordinator for the service, Dr. Anthony Pattin, has gathered an impressive slate of musicians, including members of The Toledo Symphony Orchestra, guitarist and folksinger M’lissa Prottengeier, the DCSC Ensemble, The Toledo Interfaith Choir, and more.

Glenwood Church is excited to bring this tribute back to the Toledo community.

We hope you’ll join us!
