WELCOME

2014 Triangle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Holiday Celebration

“50 Years Later:  The Journey Continues in Pursuit of The Dream” is the theme for the 2014 King Holiday Observance events hosted by the Triangle Martin Luther King, Jr. Committee.  As we look back at Dr. King’s sacrificial and tireless labor on the battlefield of civil rights, we are each also challenged to continually press onward for progress towards achieving the dream he envisioned, articulated and fought to see realized for every American.

As we join hands as a community to celebrate the life and work of Dr. King, we welcome your participation and feedback for planned upcoming events for the 2014 Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Holiday Celebration on Monday, January 20, 2014. Join us on this important journey as we look at ways to broaden the conversation on how Dr. King’s work continues to impact our lives today.

Thank you for taking time to visit this site.  Please visit frequently as we continue to update the site with links to King Holiday Observance event happenings in and around the Triangle region.  Click on the “Contact Us” page to share feedback and/or any questions.

A Community planning meeting will be held December 7th at First Baptist Church, located at 101 S Wilmington Street, Raleigh, NC.
