Honoring the Spirit of Martin Luther King Jr.

Posted on 12/31/18 by TheAARPBulletin, AARP Blog Author

Lift every voice and sing with AARP in Cincinnati to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. To honor the legacy of the historic civil rights leader, the organization is hosting a brunch and special musical performance featuring the Northern Kentucky Brotherhood Singers, an African American men’s a cappella group.

The quintet specializes in intricate, emotional harmonies. Their repertoire includes gospel songs and rhythm and blues favorites.

The group has performed the national anthem almost a dozen times for Cincinnati Bengals games at Paul Brown Stadium.

The event will be held Monday, Jan. 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the recently renovated and reopened Memorial Hall at 1225 Elm St. in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.

During the brunch, AARP will recognize Augustus Williams, 94, of Springfield Township, for his contributions to the community and for epitomizing the empowering spirit of Dr. King.

More than 25 years ago, Williams founded a Boy Scout troop at Lincoln Heights Missionary Baptist Church. The troop remains active today.

The brunch and concert are free and open to members and their guests, but registration is required.

To sign up for this event, register at aarp.org/cincinnati or call 877-926-8300.
