CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) — Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a month and a half away but preparations are already in the works for a special celebration of this annual tradition.

Over ten days, the YWCA of Greater Charleston will present a community-wide event commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through an array of special events, all of which falls under this year’s theme; One Man, One Dream, Together We Achieve.

“We are celebrating Dr. King’s dream and his legacy, his dream of equality, we feel that saying ‘together we achieve’ we make sure that we all know that we have to invest in seeing this dream become actualized,” said LaVanda Brown. “We recognize that we’ve made some progress as a country, as a community, but there is still a lot of work to be done.”

Brown said the positive is that together, we can accomplish that dream. “We can bring it to fruition.”
