Aenon Baptist Church holds meeting on Dr. King’s legacy

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy and the state of violence in Rochester were the main topics of discussion on Tuesday night at a meeting involving church and law enforcement leaders.

It was held at Aenon Baptist Church on Genesee Street. Advocates say civil rights leaders fought for decades for equal education rights and now we must continue to do the same to combat violence in Rochester.

“Our children really, truly need to hear about these teaching 365 days throughout their lives,” said Camille Simmons, commissioner of the Rochester City School District.
