“We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.” [Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; excerpt from his “I Have a Dream” speech during the 1963 Washington D.C. Civil Rights March]

We invite you to this memorable signature City of Columbus flagship Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day virtual event to honor the memory of the iconic civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the largest community event of its kind honoring the fallen civil rights leader in the nation.
