There's a luncheon and program Monday afternoon.

The doctor Martin Luther King Junior steering committee is hosting a pancake breakfast and scholarship awards event in Oroville today.

At the Southside Oroville community center on lower Wyandotte Road.

The event includes a reading of doctor king's famous speech and north state congressman Doug La Malfa will present scholarship awards.

Chico’s big MLK celebration was Sunday afternoon.

This year's theme was Unarmed Truth and Unconditional Love will have the Final Word.

The event began with local music at the city plaza.

And then a march through downtown to Trinity United Methodist Church for a talk by Lesa Johnson a sociology professor at Chico State.

Vince Haynie is on the board of the MLK Unity Group and he said,"I believe love, and all the hate going on in the world and America, I believe love is going to triumph and love is going to have the final word, I truly believe that."

The event ended with a free community dinner at the church.
