St. Sabina Church celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day | The Columbia Chronicle

St. Sabina Church, a Christian church in the Auburn-Gresham neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, celebrated the 86th Martin Luther King Jr. Day on January 18 in honor of King’s birthday as well as his protests during the civil rights movement.

St. Sabina invited American actor Harry Lennix to speak about King’s legacy.

Father Michael L. Pfleger who has been working to combat violence and racial discrimination for many decades led the congregation in remembering King.

“Our hope and future and what Dr. King’s living continues is in our youth,” Pfleger said.
