Boston MLK Online Community Tribute

Thu January 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Boston MLK Online Community Tribute

The Rev. Martin Luther Jr.’s majestic ministry began and ended in the grassroots as he crusaded for justice on behalf of the poor and disinherited.

As a 26-year pastor in Montgomery, Alabama, King inveighed against segregation related to public transportation in that city. It was a battle initiated by Rosa Parks. The attorney for Dr. King and Rosa Parks was Fred Gray. Over the years Gray’s brilliance and committed career has been evident.

King’s final campaign was waged amidst the impoverished garbage workers in Memphis, Tennessee. Its is within the spirit of King’s attention to the plight of the poor and disenfranchised that we, in 2020, celebrate his legacy in Boston. We eschew the corporate breakfast event that attach themselves to his National Holiday. We focus, instead, on the destitute who struggle in the grassroots and who are victims of totalizing forms of neo-liberal capitalism and structural racism.

Join us January 14, 7 PM on ZOOM. We’d like for you to join us as we celebrate our community of ordinary folks. Everyday people. We also celebrate national and local luminaries who have been outstanding in their work at addressing the needs of the poor and the vulnerable.

Our honorees at this event include:
– Attorney Fred Gray, Civil Rights Leader
– Rev. Dr. Rodney Peterson, Faith Leader
– Dominga Martin, Cultural Artist
– Sean K Ellis, Prison Rights Advocate
– Carrie Mays, Youth Advocate
– M’Zariah Starr, Entertainer
