In memory of the life and accomplishments of Dr. Martin L .King, Jr., the North San Diego County Branch of the NAACP hosted its Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Prayer Breakfast. It was held on Monday, January 19, 2015 at 8:00 A.M. at the MiraCosta College Cafeteria, 1 Barnard Drive, Oceanside, CA.

In conjunction with this event, the City of Oceanside presented the 2015 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Service Award to Charles Adams. Each of this year’s nominees exemplified the spirit of Dr. King by making meaningful contributions to this community through leadership, service, and effort.


On December 30th, Sojourner was installed in her new space. She is located on Ridge Walk, Thurgood Marshall Campus at the University of California, San Diego.

Thurgood Marshall College hosted a reception to welcome the new public art installation, Sojourner Truth, to campus. This event was free and open to the community. The program  included presentations by campus leadership, the artist, and student groups.
