Last month several community leaders were honored at a Martin Luther King Jr. celebration at the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning in Queens on Jan. 13. The event honored about eight men and women who exemplified Martin Luther King’s dream in the work they do for their community.
Honoree’s included Donald Atkins, founder of The Eagle Academy, Carl Clay, founder of the Black Spectrum Theater, Jacques Le’Andre, coach of the Rosedale Jets, Adrienne Strother-Brown, founder of Dance Explosion, Jessica Douglas, the Queens borough director, and Reverend Doctor Phil Craig from the Greater Spring Field Community Church.
Presented with the outstanding community service award were Paul Coty of Young Lyfe and Kenny Carter, the founder of Fathers Alive in the Hood.
