15th Annual MLK Jr. Breakfast: Keynote Speaker

It is an annual tradition at First Parish to serve our community by inviting a speaker related to social justice and celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. The keynote speaker was introduced by the Reverend Lara K-J Campbell.

Our keynote speaker, Shay Stewart-Bouley’s fame is spreading fast through her blog and website, Black Girl in Maine (BGIM), which she introduced in 2008. The blog often focuses on matters of social justice and systemic racism. Her writing on race and diversity also has been featured in a variety of Maine and national publications.
