Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

The Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration is a long-standing tradition of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center, with a series of events honoring King’s life and legacy. For the first time in the City’s history, there will be more than a week-long commemoration, which will begin on January 9, 2019, and will run through January 22, 2019.

This year’s theme is “Reconciliation: Moving the Dream Forward” and all events will touch on various issues Dr. King championed during his lifelong career of activism.

Below is a schedule of events planned for the 2019 MLK Celebration Week. For details, visit www.dallasmlkcenter.com/mlk-celebration-week.
