In the "90210"- stereotyped county of Montgomery, there was an official county MLK day concert, as all pc places have. Dr. Samadari's Orchestra, the DMYOP from Suitland, was one of the performing groups. That was me there, too, and just before the happy clappy Chinese performance. I missed out on part of the action, the awards ceremonies, but got back in time for the Howard Univ Choir- great soul.
Yes, there were a lot of county-elected officials there, as well as the House Rep for the area.
