Citizen of the Week

Thursday, January 24, 2013

This week's top-notch Citizens of the Week are organizer Quinn Withy and all the other participants in Sunday's Martin Luther King festivities, including a recital at The Aud. Pictured here are some of the many who took time out to celebrate the birthday of this major visionary and lover of peace. King, who was killed in 1968 at age 39, would be 84 today. The idea grew out of the local Occupy movement, Withy said, whose participants were concerned that the lack of an MLK Day observance in Eureka Springs and decided to do something about it. Here, l. to r., are Ivan Thompson, Francesca Giri, Shakena Kedem, Rebecca Jean Brock and Arkansas Red. Giri's business, Flora Roja Acupuncture, sponsored the event.
