As we are not able to be together this year for our annual MLK Breakfast, let’s look back to our keynote speaker from 2013. The Reverend Robert S. Graetz was the only white minister to participate in the historic 1955 Montgomery bus boycott and a leader of the Civil Rights Movement.
Sadly, we lost Robert and his wife, Jean in 2020, but please view this beautiful tribute by their son, Jon, who is a member of our Diversity Council: https://drive.google.com/…/1UHFpBCwz59TnPQMDR3P1…/view
