I always look forward to 103.5’s Peace and Freedom Weekend. Not because I work there, it’s always a great weekend of entertainment and education.
It was all comedy and laughs at Sam’s Town Casino last Friday (Jan. 13) night with the “Mo Funny for your Money Comedy Show.” Featuring comedians Pierre, Joe Clair, Special K and more, the show was definitely worth the money. I even got a chance to sit down and talk to Pierre. That interview will be forthcoming, so be on the lookout.
The following night was all about the Blues as Sir Charles Jones and Bobby Rush took the stage to deliver their unique brands of the blues to a sold out house.
After resting on Sunday, there was the 103.5 full broadcast at the National Civil Rights Museum. Hundreds, maybe thousands, showed up to not only remember the sacrifices Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. made for us, but to also learn more about the struggles of the civil rights movement.
Here’s a little note to remember: the National Civil Rights Museum is actually open every day of the week except for Tuesday. You don’t actually have to wait until Dr. King’s birthday to pay them a visit. They have great things happening over there all the time. But if you never keep up with them, you’ll never know, right?
One more note: Dr. King did not fight for equality only on his birthday. He did it every day until he died, which leads me to my point. You don’t have to wait until one day of the year to stand up for what’s right. You don’t have to wait until once a year to be aware of what Dr. King stood for. You can live the dream every day.
So what are you waiting for?
