Martin Luther King Junior Celebrated in Bladen County
Although the COVID-19 Pandemic made celebrating Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King Junior Day different this year, it did not stop the Bladen County citizens from celebrating. Unity in the Community organized by Fletcher Collins, also know as “Big Show,” was held for the 10th year last Monday to celebrate Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Collins expressed his gratitude for all the support of the years.
Denéja Tané said, “I hate we had to do our annual #MLKUITC event this way this year but nevertheless “TODAY WAS A GREAT DAY!” We appreciate all those who came out and supported, those who donated, wished us a successful turnout, etc. And to those who wanted to be here but couldn’t we love you and hope you’ll be able to join us next year for an even bigger celebration!”
The Black Onyx also made a media post about the event.
Baldwin Branch Missionary Baptist Church posted on their social media account,
“Missing the Annual MLK Parade and Unity In The Community so much this year!!
Here are some memories to enjoy from past years “
