Martin Luther King Jr. celebration to feature keynote speaker Spencer Haywood


Spencer Haywood

Spencer Haywood, 2015 Basketball Hall of Fame inductee

Edmonds Community College will host a free Martin Luther King Jr. celebration on Thursday, Jan. 11. Join us as our community celebrates the life and teachings of Dr. King with an inspirational message from keynote speaker Spencer Haywood.

Haywood went from picking cotton in rural Mississippi to being inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, fighting every step of the way – for his civil rights, against addiction, and against the NBA itself in the U.S. Supreme Court.

He will speak at 12:30 p.m. on campus in the Black Box Theatre, 20310 68th Ave. W, Lynnwood. Tickets will be available at the door starting at 11:15 a.m. on a first come first serve basis, see campus map and directions.
