RICHMOND, Va. – We met Elijah Coles-Brown, a teen motivational speaker and social justice advocate, almost five years ago when his motto “unlimited possibilities when you read, dream and imagine” captured our attention. In  honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday, Elijah visited our live show to share an excerpt from one of Dr. King’s famous speeches, "I’ve Been to the Mountaintop." Today, Elijah also participated in The Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration presented by the Baptist Minister’s Conference of Goochland and Vicinity at Jerusalem Baptist Church. To learn more about Elijah, visit his website by clicking here.
