The Martin Luther King ‘Freedom To Twerk’ teen party that has caused outrage in Flint has been officially cancelled, and the venue owner Vic McEwen has rescheduled a MLK tribute event in it’s place.

Here is the original flyer that circulated with a doctored image of Martin Luther King on it.

The picture showing Martin Luther King flashing a gang sign threw the community into a frenzy, and the event has officially been cancelled.

If there is a silver lining to this story, it’s that the venue owner Vic McEwen is trying to make things right by organizing a MLK tribute event.  He told Mlive that he he was horrified seeing the fallen civil rights leader’s image used like that.

The new event will be Saturday from 2-6pm at The Social Network.  McEwen said he’s planning to have food, music and educational materials on MLK.  Anthony Dirrell will also be at the party to sign autographs and take pictures with fans.

While the change of events doesn’t make everything right, at least is positive forward movement.  It also shows that Flint cares about the images targeted towards its youth, and can stand up to change things when we get together.
