On January 18, 2010 at 11:00am, the O.B. Hardison Poetry Series celebrated the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a combined program of dramatic readings of speeches, poetry, and an open-mic session in the The Haskell Center for Education and Public Programs. The event featured poets Gayle Danley, Twain Dooley, and Sonya Renee Taylor, and actors Ricardo Evans, Beth Hylton, Theodore Snead, and Deidra LaWan Starnes.

The Folger also collected donations of non-perishable food items for local Capitol Hill food pantry at the The Lutheran Church of the Reformation.
