It’s been a Redding tradition since 1986 to celebrate the life and works of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a ceremonial bell-ringing and events at Old City Hall on Market Street, ringing the bell 39 times, for every year King was old at the time of his assassination on April 4, 1968.

This year, in compliance of public health COVID-19 safety mandates, the Redding that honors King is a virtual one.

The video lasts 40 minutes, and features King’s words and photos, as well as the bell-ringing, numerous prayers, and words spoken by a variety of North State leaders, performing artists, religious representatives, poets, singers and speakers.
