Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Celebrating our county's namesake
30th Annual MLK Celebration
January 12, 2017
King County celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on January 12, 2017 at the 5th Avenue Theatre in downtown Seattle. Now in its 30th year, the MLK Celebration recognizes the impact that Dr. King had on our community and our nation, and reminds us to keep striving toward his dream of equity and justice. As stated on the 2017 King County MLK Calendar:
America owes a debt of justice which it has only begun to pay. If it loses the will to finish or slackens in its determination, history will recall its crimes and the country that would be great will lack the most indispensable element of greatness -- justice.
