Keynote speaker Nate Miles rocked Mt. Zion Baptist Church with his fiery delivery, passionate cry for social, economic, and civil rights justices, and dramatic storytelling at “Leaders and Leadership” last Friday, an event in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday. Organized by the Seattle Community Colleges, the annual event brought together the young and old with an audience of more than 1,000.
Elected officials gave moving testimonies, from Congressmen Jim McDermott, Jay Inslee, to Adam Smith. King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn also spiced up the event.
Topping it all off was a powerful presentation of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, performed by students. (end)
