MLK Academy for Boys Annual Mother Son Dance

Special to The Truth

Dj Big Lou -The Mayor provided the music while J Mae’s provided the food.
It was, as usual, a beautiful affair. This started with a dream that began in our cafeteria and now we’re in the MLK Gymnasium.

Our boys escort their mothers to their seats and spend time bonding with them in an environment outside of the home. The theme being “Denim and Diamonds, many came with their “A” game dressed to impress. Toward the end of the dance we always pay tribute to the mothers with “Momma” by Boys II Men. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place. The words alone from that song will cause anyone to cry.

Looking forward to next year!
