Tickets still available for MLK Jr. Breakfast

NEWBURYPORT — Tickets are still on sale for the YWCA Greater Newburyport’s 2013 Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast on Monday, Jan. 21, at Newburyport City Hall.

Registration and continental breakfast will begin at 8 a.m. The program starts at 8:30.

Jamele Adams, associated dean of student life at Brandeis University in Waltham, will be the guest presenter at this year’s breakfast. Adams oversees the departments of Student Activities and Community Service, as well as the Intercultural Center and the Chaplaincy. He works with campus groups to promote and enhance opportunities to celebrate diversity at Brandeis. In addition, he oversees the Community Prejudice Response Task Force.

Known as Harlym 125, Adams was a frequent and highly regarded figure in competitions in New York and beyond. Since coming to Brandeis, he has become part of the Boston-area poetry scene and joined a team of poets that has won numerous competitions regionally and nationally.

Tickets for the breakfast are $25, $20 for senior citizens. Thanks to the generous donations of sponsors and community members, area high school students are able to attend the breakfast for free.

Advance tickets can be purchased at the YWCA, 13 Market St., Newburyport, until today at noon. Tickets will also be available at the door. For more information, go to or call 978-465-9922.
