Unity, righting moral wrongs theme of MLK breakfast in Hoffman Estates
The Rev. Robbie Robinson inspired and motivated his audience Monday morning as he addressed the racial issues of today with the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during Hoffman Estates' 13th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Breakfast celebration.
"We must all come together like we are doing today. We must break bread together like we are doing today," said Robinson, the interim pastor at Christian Tabernacle Church in Roselle. "We must learn that we have more in common than we have apart. We cannot truly have moral rights until we eradicate moral wrongs."
The event was sponsored by the Hoffman Estates Cultural Awareness Commission, and also featured remarks by Mayor William D. McLeod and music by the St. James AME Gospel Choir.
"I think it was a great opportunity for people to come together and remember Dr. Martin Luther King," said Bartlett resident Traci Milledge. "I think it's a great opportunity for us to bring our children out and also remember him and keep his dream alive."
