Eye On Boise: MLK Day At Capitol

Idaho's annual Martin Luther King Jr.-Idaho Human Rights Day celebration in the state Capitol on Monday will feature the Rev. Percy “Happy” Watkins, pastor of New Hope Baptist Church in Spokane, as keynote speaker; he'll perform his rendition of King's “I Have a Dream” speech, which will be followed by a trumpet solo by Boise State University Director of Bands Marcellus Brown. Lt. Gov. Brad Little will read a proclamation, and there will be musical performances, a color guard, exhibits and a Boise Peace Quilt display. The annual event is set for the 2nd floor rotunda of the Capitol at noon on Monday/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
