As the nation marked Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, there were several events throughout the week in Greenwich.

At annual MLK event community reflects on social injustice

As fate would have it, Monday’s celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday fell on the same day that the first black president of the United States was sworn in for a second term, marking just how far the country has come in the fight against racism.

King’s legacy

It was a coincidence brought about by a fluke in the calendar that the second inauguration of President Barack Obama took place on Martin Luther King Day. But the truth is that as stagecraft that could not be beat.

The first black president of the United States taking the oath of office on a day celebrating the legacy of a civil rights icon who gave his life to the struggle to create not just freedom, but opportunity for all, would seem to be something out of a movie script. But it really happened and it’s important that, as we marked the life and works of Dr. King, we also note very carefully the words spoken by Mr. Obama.
