On Monday at the 29th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration in Des Moines where politicians such as Gov. Kim Reynolds and Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg spoke of equality and opportunity, where young Emmet Phillips offered some stunning poems, where Izzah jB Knox spoke of current needs, where prayers were offered and music made; two people received recognition for their efforts.
