From a dream to a destiny, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision still inspires people today.
The Dr. Martin Luther King National Holiday Celebration presented in partnership with Atrium Health, City of Charlotte and WSOCTV will air Monday, Jan. 18 at 7 p.m.
The one-hour inspiring program will showcase how members of our community are reflecting on and honoring Dr. King’s legacy and look back at the history of the annual event.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. believed in celebrating and promoting the worth of every human being. In his pursuit of equal rights by nonviolent means, Dr. King encouraged diverse cultures to live together in a spirit of love, understanding and service to one another.
In that same spirit, the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, through its Community Relations Committee, came together to expand our community’s observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day through the Charlotte-Mecklenburg MLK National Holiday Celebration.
