Civil rights icon the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is pictured in front of the bandstand on the Claflin campus, where he addressed a small group of students, faculty and members of the Orangeburg Branch of the NAACP. King visited Orangeburg during the late 1950s and early 1960s.

In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, a "Stop the Violence" march, rally and program is being sponsored by the Orangeburg Branch NAACP. 

At 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19, a line-up and prayer will be held downtown on the Orangeburg square. After the assembly and prayers, the group will march to the MLK Auditorium at South Carolina State University where a program will be held at 4 p.m.

Everyone is invited to participate.
