CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Republican Gov. Chris Sununu and his Democratic predecessor will speak at a Nashua dinner in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The theme of the Monday dinner is “Healing America’s Ethnic and Racial Division.”

The dinner marks one of Sununu’s first public speaking engagements as the new governor. Democratic U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan, the former governor, is the night’s keynote speaker. Sununu and Hassan are used to sharing the spotlight; Sununu sat on the Executive Council for Hassan’s two terms as governor.

Other event speakers include Lt. John Marasco of the New Hampshire State Police training and community relations and Robert Leikind, director of the American Jewish Conference New England. The Himanshi Dance Academy will provide entertaining.

The National Cultural Diversity Awareness Council is hosting the event.
