Groups around Lane County are gathering over the weekend and on Monday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Before his assassination, King requested that his funeral not focus on official awards or honors, but instead note that he tried to help the needy and "love and serve humanity.” The civil rights leader and anti-war activist would be celebrating his 82nd birthday on Friday, Jan. 15. Eugeneans will celebrate him throughout the weekend and Monday, Jan. 17 holiday. For ways to honor King or volunteer in his memory, check out the gatherings and volunteer sections in the Calendar.
