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.
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.
The Board and Celebration Committee are currently planning 2023 activities.
