The Granville County Human Relations Commission annual event to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will again be held virtually on Monday, Jan. 17, 2022.
The program will include the middle school and high school winners of the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. essay contest, some special musical performances, and appearances from numerous Human Relations Commission members filmed in locations across Granville County. The keynote speaker will be Rev. James Isaac of New Hope Granville Missionary Baptist Church.
There are several ways to view the event, which begins at 7 a.m. One way is to tune in to Spectrum Channel 17, Granville County’s local government access channel. The program will be re-run each hour for several weeks on Channel 17. The video will premiere on the Granville County Facebook Page and the Granville County YouTube page at 7 a.m. and will be available for on-demand viewing thereafter.
The video also will be posted on the Granville County website (www.granvillecounty.org).
The format will follow the 2021 virtual event model, which was moved to Spectrum Channel 17 and to the Granville County Facebook and YouTube channels due to health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Human Relations Commission chose to hold a virtual event again in 2022 due to the uncertainty of planning a large in-person event.
