MLK Day Recap 2011 at Hoboken All Saints Church

Yesterday at the Hoboken All Saints Church at 7th and Washington Street, students from the Hoboken Charter and Mustard Seed schools participated in the Annual Martin Luther King Day "Sing Out for Justice". The event was held from 4:00PM - 6:30PM and had a variety of musical, dance and spoken word participants. Several politicians were in attendance including Maurice Fitzgibbons with his project Tim Occhipinti. Also in attendance were Councilwoman Beth Mason with her husband Ricky, Councilman Peter Cunningham and 2nd Ward Candidate Tom Greaney to mention a few. The students really seemed to enjoy performing and participating in the activities.

Here are a few photos from the event:

The Chruch was eventually standing room only at one point.

Tom Greaney met former Mayoral Candidate Tom Vincent and when Tom Vincent was told Tom
Greaney was running against Beth Mason He replied "You've got my vote. Don't say anything more."
That was a joke and the two got to know each other a bit over the next few minutes.

Here is some pretty impressive student artwork on display:
