Several Findlay residents honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Thursday night. The Courier reports around 20 people took part in the annual “unity walk” from First Lutheran Church to Dorney Plaza. Roughly 50 people were on hand for a church service following the walk.
The featured speaker was Ohio House Minority Leader Fred Strahorn. He talked about approaching racial issues with a “sense of civility and love.” Strahorn also said people are still dealing with racism today, although much of it is unintentional.
The event was organized by the Black Heritage Library and Multicultural Center, and the University of Findlay.
