Please join us for an inspiring and provocative discussion with one of Chicago's most remarkable and effective social activists, Rev. Michael L. Pfleger, Pastor
of the Faith Community of Saint Sabina. Among his many accomplishments, Father Pfleger is the founder of the Employment Resource Center, the Ark Youth Center, Saint Sabina Social Service Center, Thea Bowman Spiritual Advance Center, Samaritan House for the homeless, Saint Sabina 80-unit Elders Village and the Beloved Community, Inc. At the request of Mrs. Coretta Scott King, he was the keynote speaker for the national Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Service held on January 20, 2003, at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. And at the request of the King Family, he was one of the speakers to eulogize Mrs. Coretta Scott King on February 8, 2006. Father Pfleger will reflect on and answer questions about his role in carrying on the legacy of Dr. King. This event is part of the MLK Initiative program, and it will be held at the Center for Identity and Inclusion Community Lounge at 5710 S. Woodlawn.
