2018 Martin Luther King, Jr. Banquet
NLC OK was proud to be a Silver Sponsor for the 34th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Banquet in Lawton yesterday!
Our Co-Directors and Fellows with Lawton roots were able to interact with community members, NLC supporters, House and Gubernatorial candidates, and even caught a selfie with Kent J Smith, Jr. - President of Oklahoma’s only Historically Black College and University (HBCU): Langston University - who served as the keynote speaker.
Special thanks to NLC supporter Debbie Bailey-Smith for making last night possible as well as Mayor Katherine Rice and her husband, Greg, for being guests of our table. Mayor Rice was recently elected as the Mayor of Geronimo, Oklahoma. She is the youngest person and first Black resident to hold that position.
Millennial leaders are truly working to make Dr. King’s dream a reality throughout the state of Oklahoma!
