Made in Medford Celebrating MLK, Black Heritage
Website launching new channel dedicated to the kickoff of Black History Month.
Made in Medford, the local segment of Comcast’s Project Open Voice, is creating a new channel to kick off Black History Month and to celebrate two important events this week: the inauguration of President Barack Obama and Martin Luther King, Jr., Day.
"The channel will kick off with a video that highlights local youth who will talk about what the past words of MLK mean to them today," according to a release from Made in Medford.
"Local activities to be featured include youth from the Medford Boys & Girls Club using an excerpt from Dr. King’s 'I Have a Dream' speech as a platform to discuss their own dreams in a video filmed by Tufts University students," the release stated. "Residents will talk about what black heritage means to them."
More information is available on their website.
