GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) -A tradition that is closing in on three decades running continued this morning to remember the legacy and mission of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
It was a packed house at the 27th Annual Community Unity Breakfast event this morning from 7:30 to 9.
Residents and community leaders from Greenville and Pitt County got together at this free event in the ECU Murphy Center to reflect on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the impact he made on so many lives.
The event featured keynote speaker Pastor Eve C. Rogers who delved into Dr. Kings mission and upholding his leadership within our own communities.
Reimage Church was one of the many sponsors of the event and lead pastor Chris Hopkins says we should follow in Dr. King’s footsteps.
“This year I know there is going to be so many threats to unity in our community. I think we need to recognize those threats and to be prepared to individually pursue justice and peace in every way that we can,” Hopkins said.
Each year, the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce partners with the City of Greenville to host the Community Unity Breakfast. The event also featured music by Pitt Community College’s United Singers.
