MLK Day is a national day of service, observed as a “day on, not a
day off.” MLK Day of Service is intended to empower individuals,
strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social
problems, and move us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “Beloved
Community.” In observance of MLK Day 2019, members of the
North Mississippi VISTA Project and UM volunteers traveled to
New Albany to complete beautification projects on Bankhead
Street, at the Park Along the River, and at the Union County
Heritage Museum. In 2020, members deep cleaned the interior of
the Union County Heritage Museum and buidings in its pioneer
village as well as the Tallahatchie Arts Council art house.
