About MLK events

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. believed in celebrating and promoting the worth of every human being. In his pursuit of equal rights by non-violent means, King encouraged diverse cultures to live together in a spirt of love, understanding and service to one another.
 
In that same spirit, the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, through their Community Relations committee, came together to expand our community's observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day through the Charlotte-Mecklenburg MLK National Holiday Celebration.
 
Through these events, we celebrate those who are committed to carrying King's legacy forward from generation to generation.
