It may be too late to order tickets for the 29th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. But there are two other ways to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King on Monday, January 20 that are free and open to the public.

From 8 a.m. to noon, the First African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church is hosting the 18th annual Martin Luther King Free Community Breakfast at 873 Bryden Road in Columbus. The program, from 10 a.m. to noon in the sanctuary, will be on "The Condition of the Black Community."

The event is sponsored by Police Officers for Equal Rights. For more information, contact Tyrone Thomas at (614) 668-4837 or

At 4 p.m. supporters of Dr. King's legacy will gather at the City Hall Parking Garage, 90 West Broad Street for a ceremonial march to Veterans Memorial, 300 West Broad Street, where there will be a program on the theme "Still Working" at 5:45 p.m.

In keeping with Dr. King's work for economic justice, allies of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers will join the ceremonial march to call on Wendy's to support farm workers by joining the CIW's Fair Food Program. For more information, contact Sue at (614) 459-0017 or
