MLK Association of Asheville
"Our LIVES Begin To End The Day
We Become SILENT About Things That MATTER"
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


For many years the special events to honor Dr. King on the weekend of his birthday have been the primary focus of the MLK Association. Our Prayer Breakfast, Youth Awards Celebration, Candlelight Service, and March & Rally for justice have drawn huge crowds, positive press coverage, and important support in the community for Dr. King’s vision and our shared dreams.

The 2021 Celebration Will be Online!

The format for the 2021 Celebration will be different this year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. As we commemorate forty (40) years of service and celebrations, we will move most of our programming to online platforms utilizing YouTube and Zoom.

From time to time we also undertake special programming events, such as the YWCA’s Stand Against Racism, the commissioning and installation of the King statue in Martin Luther King, Jr. Park in Asheville, and classes in nonviolence. Please check this page from time to time to see what else is coming up.
