On Monday, Jan. 20, Darlington honored the legacy of civil rights pioneer Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with an afternoon of stories, music, and prayer. Hosted at First Church of God, the celebration featured multi-denominational messages of peace and unity delivered by pastors from all over Darlington County. Musical performances by Minister Derrick Bull, violinist Te’Quan Coe, LaNita Benton-Lowe, and the Darlington High School Gospel Choir enlivened the proceedings, and the day finished with awards presented to community leaders who embody some of Dr. King’s core values, such as community service, education, and heritage preservation.
