Students from East Aurora High School and middle schools will help celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King by participating in a citywide commemoration on Monday, Jan. 16.
The presentation, entitled "Did the Dream Die?" takes place at Metea Valley High School, 1801 N. Eola Road, Aurora, at 6 p.m.
East Aurora students will join students from other neighboring school districts as they present a series of dramatic interpretations, highlighting major milestones in King's life. East Aurora students will perform a dramatic portrayal of the Selma march of 1968.
The event will also include a presentation of “Service Over Self Awards” — recognizing youth who are carrying on Dr. King’s dedication to selfless service to others, as well as certificates presented to all those who volunteered as part of the MLK Day of Service.
Hosted by Aurora MLK Planning Committee, the event is free and open to the public.
