Nonviolence program set on King Day

The Howard County Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Commission will sponsor the first annual King Nonviolence Program from noon to 4 p.m. Monday at The Mall in Columbia.

The program will focus on ways in which Dr. King's philosophy of nonviolence can be applied to solve problems currently facing the community.

The program will feature demonstrations of nonviolent dispute resolution techniques by the members of the Peer Mediation Program of the Howard County Schools, and a puppet show on nonviolence and diversity issues by the "Next Door Neighbors" troupe.

There will also be exhibits commemorating the work of Dr. King; an oral history project featuring the experiences of county residents who were active in human rights struggles; and information on resources within the county for the prevention of violence.

Information: 313-7230.
