13th Annual Lauderhill MLK Celebration

The City of Lauderhill Martin Luther King program and its chair Commissioner M. Margaret Bates invite you the 13th Annual Celebration featuring Shirley Sherrod. This cultural event will be held on January 19, 2013 at 7:00 pm at Screen Post Productions (3500 NW 15th Street, Lauderhill).  Tickets are available at Lauderhill City Hall at the cost of $50.

Shirley Sherrod is a former Georgia State Director of Rural Development for the United States Department of Agriculture. She became the subject of a controversy when edited remarks were used to force her to resign. However, upon review of the complete unedited video in full context, the NAACP, White House officials, and Tom Vilsack, the United States Secretary of Agriculture, apologized for the firing and Sherrod was offered a new position.
For more information call 954-730-3000.
