Pastor pays homage to MLK, says he's encouraged by progress
One of Shreveport's civil rights legends paid homage Jan. 18 to the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. by speaking at a convocation at Centenary College. The Rev. Harry Blake spoke of growing up on several plantations, his connection to King and his role in the civil rights movement in Shreveport. He said he's encouraged by some of the progress being made, especially on the Centenary campus.
