Celebrating King's Life
At United We Walk

U

lifted We Walk" is a group of
adult and student volunteers
who come together each
year to celebrate the life and contribu-
tions of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. This year marks the 18th
anniversary of the community-based
multicultural celebration. The walk,
program, dialogues and candlelight
vigil all will be held from 3-6:30 p.m.
Sunday, Jan. 15, at West Bloomfield
High School (WBHS).
Dr. Silas Norman Jr., an assistant
professor at Wayne State University
where he serves as director of
Community Health Services and
associate dean for admissions, diver-
sity and inclusion in the College of
Medicine, will be the keynote speaker.
Norman, who is active in church
and civic affairs and organizations,
is still doing the work he began
as a freedom fighter in the South.
During the summer of 1964, he was
a 23-year-old graduate student at the
University of Wisconsin who went to
Selma, Ala., to be part of a five-mem-
ber Selma Literacy Project designed
to prepare people to vote.
United We Walk Co-Chair Brian
Flaggs said, "We are very excited to
have this legendary gentleman par-
ticipate and share his personal expe-
riences''
At 3 p.m., the event begins with a
Peace Walk along Orchard Lake Road.
People and organization members
are encouraged to create banners
celebrating the 2012 theme, "United
We Build the Dream:' and to carry the
banners during the walk.
The program will be from 3:30-4:30
p.m. It features several choirs and the
keynote speaker.
A candlelight vigil, led by David
Henig of Temple Kol Ami, will be held
from 4:30-4:45 p.m. in the WBHS
auditorium. This is followed by a free
community dinner in the cafeteria.
"I have been involved with United
We Walk for probably 10 years, three
of them as co-chair;' Henig said. "I
believe it is important for Jews to
participate in this and other inter-
faith, interethnic activities because
once you know 'the other: he becomes
your friend. There are those who will
believe the stereotypes until they are
proven wrong by personal experi-
ence:'

We Walk, call (248) 865-6420 or go to

Monday, Jan. 16, the official obser-
vance of King's birthday, will be a day
of community service. 0
