On Monday, January 18, 2021, the nation celebrates Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his social and spiritual accomplishments for civil rights in the United States.
Traditionally, the City hosts its Annual Tribute to Dr. King the Saturday before the holiday, however, because of the COVID-19 pandemic and its resulting gathering restrictions, this will be the first time in thirty years that an in-person tribute will not be held.
The City commemorates Dr. King’s legacy with this year’s theme, “Standing Together” – standing together in the fight for social justice and standing together although we are physically apart due to the pandemic.
