Andover Baptist Church hosted its 13th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Unity Celebration on Jan. 20

The theme of the event was "sustaining the legacy of Dr. King's dream." The message was delivered by entrepreneur and bestselling author Kevin D. Johnson, president and CEO of Johnson Media Inc.

Performing musical artists included the Andover Baptist Church Unity Choir, the Andover High School Chamber Choir, Cantor Idan Irelander of Temple Emanuel Andover, and The Choral Majority.

Each year, the church hosts a breakfast and a speaker series to salute the late civil rights leader who was assassinated in 1968.

Also taking place that day was the annual breakfast hosted by the NAACP Merrimack Valley Branch, which was held at the DoubleTree Hotel on Old River Road and featured the theme, "Leading the Fight for Equality."
