City Tribute to Dr. King

2019-MLKJr-Tribute-Event-Save-the-Date

Join us for the 28th Annual City Tribute to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Saturday, January 12. 2019 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. at The Clarice located on the University of Maryland campus. This inspirational and educational event is free and for all ages.

The City's annual event honors Dr. King's legacy through a keynote address, performances, art and a City proclamation. Every year a new theme is selected, showcasing how his work still impacts our community and our country and what we can do to continue his efforts in our current era.

This year's theme is "Injustice Anywhere is a Threat to Justice Everywhere" presented by the 2019 Keynote Speaker Melvin C. High. Mr. High is Prince George's County Sheriff.

Stay tuned for updates regarding performances and artwork.

Free event parking is available nearby in University Lots 1b and Z all day on Saturdays (excluding home football games). These lots are about a 2-5 minute walk to the venue. There are also paid parking options in the Stadium Drive Garage as well.

The selections and songs presented during the event are chosen by the participants as their way to honor Dr. King. The City, by sponsoring this event, does not endorse any particular religion, belief system or presentation.
