BOSTON (AP) — One of the highlights of the state's civic and political calendar is scheduled for this week as elected officials, activists, clergy and others gather for Boston's annual breakfast honoring Martin Luther King Jr.
It's the 43rd annual hosting of the breakfast.
This year the Monday morning event is scheduled to take place on the same day that President Barack Obama will be sworn in for his second term in Washington.
The breakfast typically draws the state's top political figures.
A two-day series of events commemorating the life and message of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was held at Williams College.
On the Williams College campus, programs were held throughout Sunday and Monday paying tribute to Dr. King. Ranging from a documentary film screening, lectures, a gallery exhibition, and a presentation with local school children, students, faculty and the public took the time to remember and reflect the actions of those in the civil rights era.
