United Voice: Solution Sundays
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH0 —
United Voice is a collaborative effort involving Oklahoma City metro broadcast stations and newspapers to raise awareness about race relations.
The program launched Wednesday, which also marked 50 years since Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, during the city's sanitation workers strike.
Dr. King told an overflowing crowd on April 3, 1968, "I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land."
It would be the last words Dr. King spoke in public. He was gunned down the very next day.
Decades later, our nation continues to wrestle with race relations, but there's a glimmer of hope in the Sooner State
Some people are taking that conversation to the dinner table.
They call it "Solution Sundays" and it's a way for people of different races to get to know one another with a simple Sunday meal.
