The Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Woodruff each year hosts a presentation celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. They bring in a special guest to talk about the legacy left by Dr. King as it relates to today's issues. This year, the guest is from close to home. Cara Fitzgerald is a 2001 Rhinelander High School grad and teaches English in Madison-area schools. She and other staff at one school worked to have the entire school read on police and race relations and have a conversation about it. The idea has spread to other schools. Fitzgerald will talk about "Creating Conversations in the Community" around race relations. WXPR's Ken Krall talks with Cara Fitzgerald..

The Martin Luther King, Jr. forum is scheduled for Sunday, January 14, at 1:30 p.m at the Nicolet College Theater. The presentation is free to the public and children are welcomed.
