Terre Haute, IN. (WTWO/WAWV) — Members of the NAACP reflected on the meaning of MLK Day this evening.
Sylvester Edwards is the president of the local chapter and he believes the holiday has made a big impact in the Wabash Valley.
Edwards explains how Terre Haute is showing its appreciation with different displays around town. On Wabash Avenue, Hometown Heritage Hero Banners were on display to remember those who have made an impact. Also, the Vigo County Public Library has a display of books and facts about Dr. King.
Edwards has lived in and around Terre Haute for 46 years and he said he has seen the impact.
“Think about the activities of the achievement that this great man has done. And hopefully that we can do just a little bit and all of us together doing a little bit can do a lot,” Edwards said.
Edwards also said to never limit yourself and what you believe in.
