Simpson recounted her relationship with King and pointed to the recent Arizona shootings as evidence that work remains to be done in fighting bigotry and accepting people’s differences. The breakfast featured  performances from The Thunder Step Squad of Wellesley High School and the Wellesley Choral Society, and honored the Wellesley METCO Family Friends Program with the World of Wellesley Advancing Race Relations Award.
