"I hope that this moment will serve as a reminder of the constant work to realize Dr. King's dream of building the Beloved Community - a community at peace with itself and our neighbors", Lewis said in a statement posted to his website.

Following the panel, attendees can join together for a free will-donation meal and a keynote address delivered by Linn County Supervisor Stacey Walker. "Dr. King stands as a titan in the pantheon of great visionary leaders. It's just a very divided time in our country right now", he said.
