The Holiday Committee and Memorial Caravan were founded by The Rev. Onie Copper (1925-2011), former Reno-Sparks NAACP president.
As always, this year's motorcade will travel the stretch of Interstate580/US395 which Rev. Cooper successfully campaigned to have named in honor or Dr. King. Mrs. Mary Cooper continues to serve on the committee.
Details about the MLK events may be obtained by contacting Committee Chair Bishop Gene Savoy at (775) 786-1800. The event is co-sponsored by the Nevada Clergy Association.
