The Latah County Human Rights Task Force has announced that the 26th annual Martin Luther King Human Rights Community Breakfast will be held on Saturday, January 19 at 9amat the Moscow Middle School Multi-Purpose Room.  The Breakfast is held each year to honor the memory and ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and to affirm our welcoming community’s commitment to justice, equality, and inclusion. Tickets for the Breakfast are available at Paradise Ridge C.D.’s at 117 East 3rd and Book People 521 S Main, both in Moscow. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students and children.

This year’s Breakfast keynote address will be presented by Dr. Shirley Jackson, who will speak on “From Civil Rights to Human Rights.” Dr. Jackson is a professor and chair of Black Studies at Portland State University. Her areas of research specialization are race/ethnicity, gender, and social movements. She is the editor of "The Handbook of Race, Class, and Gender" and coeditor of "Caged Women: Incarceration, Representation, and Media".

In addition to Dr. Jackson’s address, the January 19th Breakfast will include presentation of the Rosa Parks Human Rights Achievement Awards and announcement of the winners of the Martin Luther King Jr. Art and Essay Contest by Moscow Mayor, Bill Lambert. The Rosa Parks awards honor community members and students who have made contributions to the cause of human rights, equality and justice.
"We are always thrilled by the full attendance at the Breakfast by community members of all ages,” says Human Rights Task Force chair, Joann Muneta. “It is also a special event because of the participation and assistance of Moscow High School student members of the Human Rights Club and the Environmental Club who help decorate for and serve the breakfast."

In addition to speaking at the Breakfast, guest speaker Dr. Jackson will give an address on Thursday, Jan. 17 at the University of Idaho Pitman Center at 6pm and will address a meeting of Moscow High School students on Friday, Jan 18 at the 1912 Center.

The Community Breakfast includes a full breakfast, entertainment, awards and the keynote address. All profits from the Breakfast are used for educational human rights programs for Latah County schools and communities.  The Breakfast is presented with the assistance of the City of Moscow Human Rights Commission. More information at www.humanrightslatah.org.
