Martin Luther King

Eighty-five years after the birth of Martin Luther King Jr., some 100 people gathered in Napa to celebrate the life of the civil rights activist — and the spirit of peace that animated it.

Ministers, singers and townspeople met at Covenant Presbyterian Church on Sunday afternoon for the annual celebration of the life, deeds and teachings of the Georgia preacher who led and symbolized the fight for African-American political equality in the 1950s and 1960s.
