A full slate of activities are scheduled across the state for the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday.  “The role he (Dr. King) served was an incredible and important role in regards to civil rights," General Sessions Court Judge and Sevier County MLK. Day Celebration Committee Chair Dwight Stokes said. "There were so many problems in our country in regards to race, and it needed to be addressed. I have a great appreciation for all that King accomplished.” Visit the Mountain Press, the Memphis Daily News and the Nashville Scene for information on activities throughout the state.
