The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would have been 81 years old this year, and to celebrate his life and his dream, a group of local citizens gathered at The River of Life Church in Springfield Monday evening.
While the event was hosted by local leaders, Rev. Billy Jenkins of Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Shepherdsville was the guest speaker at Monday’s celebration of King’s life and legacy.
Jenkins read from the Holy Bible in the book of Genesis, 37: 5-8, which tells the story of Joseph and his dream.
