Honoring Our Legacy, Building Our Future

MLK 50 is a year-long commemoration, blending the honor of our legacy with the vision of building a transformative future. Through a series of celebratory events spanning the year, we aim to not only mark the remarkable 50-year journey of the MLK Center but also to lay the foundation for the next chapter. These events serve a dual purpose—celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the MLK Center, while also fundraising for the sustainability of our impactful programs, projects, and events. As we reflect on the past, we passionately engage in activities that propel us toward a future of continued community empowerment and positive change. Join us in this meaningful journey of reflection, celebration, and commitment to building a brighter future for all.
