The city is ushering in the new year and a spirit of unity through the sponsorship of street banners in the Midtown area. The first set of banners honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and were installed on street poles on International Speedway Boulevard from Nova Road to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Featuring seven powerful quotes by the masterful orator, the banners will remain on display through February.

The banners are part of an initiative led by the Midtown Community Development Corporation and Zone 6 City Commissioner Paula R. Reed. The City of Daytona Beach is a sponsor of the initiative along with the Greater Union Life Center, the Midtown Community Development Corporation, Daytona Beach Branch NAACP, the F.R.E.S.H. Book Festival and Identity Church.

Commissioners Stacy Cantu (Zone 4), Quanita May (Zone 3) and Paula R. Reed (Zone 6) and Mayor Derrick Henry joined community leaders by the street pole banners in a public ceremony to remember the social rights activist on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Banner series expanded for Black History Month
The city will continue to partner with the Midtown Community Development Corporation to develop a street banner series for February’s Black History Month. Banners will feature local African-American pioneers and be displayed on Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard.
