A look at some of the most inspiring quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

"This is a way for neighborhoods that have been underserved or bladed where people have been moving out for years and create the type of community they want to move back to." said Mayor Teresa Tomlinson, Mayor of Columbus. "It is a testament to Dr. King's legacy and the work of our local volunteers".

The committee wanted to feature a speaker who personified the "Be the Dream" theme in the Latino community and selected Newberg resident Ines Pena.

The event showcases locally and internationally known performing artists, children from Oakland public elementary schools, archival footage of Dr. King, and the presentation of the "Oakland Citizen Humanitarian Award" presented to an outstanding Oakland citizen.

"I'm very involved in advocating for rights in general and it's part of why I'm so happy and honored to be the keynote speaker", Pena said. Students, faculty, staff, and community members may attend.
