There will be many events celebrating the life of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., but this one, to be held in Flint, Michigan, seems to have crossed the line.
The organization, Mid-Michigan Teen Parties, is hosting the “Freedom 2 Twerk” party this coming weekend. The image of King on the flyer, donning a gold chain and sagging jeans, is clearly trying to attract a young crowd.
What do you think? Did the event hosts go too far on this one?
