St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley and North County Churches Uniting for Racial Harmony and Justice will host its annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Tuesday, Jan. 21.

Carol Daniel, KMOX news anchor and the Greater St. Louis Association of Black Journalists president, will speak on the celebration’s theme, “Let’s Build Bridges, not Walls.”

In 2008, Daniel helped launch the Emmy Award-winning lifestyle television show on KMOV-TV, “Great Day St. Louis” before moving on to her next career as an author. Her first book, “All I Ever Wanted: Relationships, Marriage, Family,” was met with praise from her many fans.

Named St. Louis Press Club’s “Media Person of the Year,” she is also an award-winning columnist, having spent nearly 10 years writing for the St. Louis American newspaper. Among many other honors, she has received two National Newspaper Association awards for her column, “Carol’s Journal.”
