Hickory Offices To Be Closed Events Scheduled For Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday

Day as an official holiday for the first time, months after a US federal court ruled that descendants of black slaves, known as freedmen, who were owned by members of the nation have a right to tribal citizenship.

Solid waste and recycling normally collected on Mondays will not be collected on Monday, Jan. 15. In his executive order, Baker said the declaration was not only a tribute to King's contributions to equality for all, but is a reminder that every day we can all play a part in continuing his critical work.

As organizations gather throughout Southern Maryland to commemorate the January 15 birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., the College of Southern Maryland is joining in the conversation and celebrations occurring locally January 14 and 15.

Baker called King a "remarkable advocate" for all people of color in America, "including Indian country". We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its Indigenous population.

Baker, who signed the order December 27, said he wants to encourage tribe members and employees to dedicate the day to service. Day to better their communities and follow the legacy of King.

This year however, the format of the event is set to change and focus on arts performances and student participation, said Helaine Jeffers, who serves on the county's Martin Luther King Jr.

In addition to Sunday's program, CSM is supporting the local efforts in Charles, St. Mary's and Calvert counties on annual prayer breakfasts January 15 and their associated activities.
