MLK celebrations continue with Potluck for Peace

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was all about peace, and celebrations continued Thursday with the Potluck for Peace at the MLK Center in Wilmington.

The YWCA Lower Cape Fear hosts the Potluck for Peace four times a year.

The event started three years ago during MLK Celebration Week in collaboration with the MLK Celebration Committee.

The Potluck for Peace included plenty of food and fellowship as well as conversations about racial diversity.

“For this community I believe that it’s important to have people from different cultures, different backgrounds to come together and get to know one another so that we can build on cohesiveness in our community,” YWCA Board Member Evelyn Bryant said.

Bryant said this year’s MLK celebrations are special because this year will mark the 50th anniversary of King’s death.
