WJCS Celebrates the Rev. Dr. Martin
Luther King With a Call to Make a
Difference in Someone's Life
A stirring call to action to “go out and help someone” was one of the hallmarks of the WJCS’ celebration of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. It came from White Plains Youth Bureau Director Frank Williams Jr., who recounted his childhood in Mississippi during the Jim Crow days when luminaries such as Fannie Lou Hamer and John Lewis, now the Congressman, met in his home as they challenged injustice in the South. Williams declared that his growing up poor in Mississippi and his parents’ lack of higher education didn’t define him, but they instilled in him the love that engendered confidence to achieve success in life and the drive to help others.
