On Monday, January 17, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Board is hosting two events to celebrate Dr. King's birthday.

The celebration will begin at the Tubman African American Museum with a breakfast for everyone at 8:30 a.m. Then, at 10:00 a.m. the Board will gather at Rosa Parks Square. The event at the park will be hosted by Commissioner Elaine Lucas and live streamed on for everyone to hear from speakers, join in prayer, and listen to music in honor for Dr. King.

"We want to make sure that Dr. King's dream never goes away," said Commissioner Lucas.  "It is our fear that so many of our children, and even some adults, don't stress the importance of remembering the things that Dr. King did for us. We're hoping by continuing this annual celebration that his legacy will live on for generations."

In previous years, the Commission held a march which started in different parts of the County and ended at City Hall. To limit the potential spread of COVID-19, the Commission opted out of the march for a smaller gathering at Rosa Parks Square.
