This week the King Center begins to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

During a press conference this week, Dr. Bernice A. King, CEO, The King Center; Senator Emmanuel Jones; Judy Forté, MLK Historic Site Superintendent; and Jamida Orange, daughter of civil rights leader James Orange, announced a schedule of public programs and events in celebration of the King Holiday Observance.

Beginning Friday, January 10, 2020, and continuing through Monday, January 20, 2020, The King Center will host its annual fundraiser, commemorative program, Nonviolence365® workshop and introductions, teach-in, youth experiences, award ceremonies, Beloved Community Talks, as well as a voter education and registration event, to commemorate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on what would have been his 91st birthday.

This year’s theme, ‘King’s 2020 Vision- The Beloved Community: The Fierce Urgency of Now,’ echoes Dr. King’s declaration from his book, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?:  

“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late.”
