We’ll commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a movie, The Long Walk Home, which dramatizes the events of the 1955 bus boycott in Montgomery Alabama led by
the great civil rights leader. Whoopi Goldberg stars as an African American maid and Sissy Spacek plays her wealthy white employer. Amidst high racial tension and conflict, both women must decide where they stand regarding the boycott. After the film, for an additional $10, there will be pizza, salad, and dessert for those who would like to stay for lunch and schmooze.
