The Commission works directly with youth and others, encouraging them to embrace alternatives to violence and discover their common humanity. Through activities that stress racial and cultural diversity, the Commission offers young Arkansans a new understanding of the important roles they play in their communities, now and in the future. Please join us in supporting our Arkansas Youth in their determination in promoting the remembrance of Dr. King while participating in community service.

Therefore, the Arkansas MLK Commission graciously requests an on-air interview for Executive Director, DuShun Scarbrough, to invite the citizens of Arkansas to the upcoming 2011 Commemorative Vigil. Please feel free to post this on your community bulletin. Moreover, we invite the mobile unit to be onsite on the morning of the Vigil. Barbeque with the legislators will be provided by the AMLKC following the ceremony.

The AMLKC will acknowledge the annual “Arkansas Youth Community Service Day” to promote the noble tenets of Dr. King. During his lifetime, Dr. King sought to find the common ground on which people from all walks of life could join together as equals to address important community issues. Service, he realized, was the great equalizer. As he once said,

“Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.”
