Remember Martin Luther King at St. Peter’s Church with a local who marched with him

This Sunday, Jan. 20, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church invites the community to come listen to a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—made by a parishioner who marched with Dr. King himself decades ago.

Nat Read will speak about Dr. King, and his involvement in the civil rights movement, this Sunday at the weekly Forum, held at 10 a.m. in St. Peter’s parish hall. The author of five books and a professional public speaker, Read was involved in the civil rights movement in the South during the 1960s, and went on serve on the board of the Los Angeles Urban League.  Otherwise, he has pursued a pretty eclectic career: he has been a stand-up comic at the Improv and Comedy Store, a reserve LAPD undercover vice officer in Hollywood, a Naval Reserve captain and a cartoonist. He was also one of 75 American students in the US/USSR Student Cultural Exchange—representing the World Council of Churches—during 1960. All Sunday Forums are held during the coffee hour, at 10 a.m., in the Parish Hall. St. Peter’s is located at 334 14th St. in Del Mar Village, one block east of Highway 101.   For more information, see www.stpetersdelmar.net.
