The keynote speaker for our 2016 MLK Holiday Program will be the award-winning actor, producer and humanitarian, Mr. Danny Glover. With a performance career that spans more than 30 years, Danny Glover has portrayed a myriad of popular roles and has distinguished himself as one of his generation's consummate actors.
