The 2nd annual free taste fest is sponsored by Eaton Corporation of Southfield. As part of the 2009 MLK holiday celebration, the Southfield Public Library and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Task Force are also sponsoring the “Viola Liuzzo: An Exemplary Woman in Extraordinary Times” exhibit January 15 – February 6 at the Southfield Public Library, 26300 Evergreen Road. Viola Liuzzo was a white Detroit resident, housewife and mother of five who drove to Selma, Alabama in 1965 to protest for black voter rights and to help with voter registration. Liuzzo was murdered by Ku Klux Klan members as she was driving several local marchers home in her car after a civil rights march. Southfield was the first city in the state of Michigan to hold a Dr. King peace walk or march. The first Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace Walk took place on January 20, 1986, commemorating the first national observance of Dr. King’s birthday. The walk continues to grow in size and scope each year, with year-long educational and community outreach activities. For more information, call Barbara Seldon, president of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Task Force, at (248) 358-0432, or visit www.MLKtaskForceMI.org
