DATE AND LOCATION of this event will be announced soon.
As we recall Dr. Martin Luther King’s untimely death at the age of 39 in 1968, it is still very hard to believe that it’s been over 50 years since the date of his assassination on April 4, 2018. We remember Dr. King as a minister, humanitarian, civil rights leader and activist who influenced American society with the strong belief in non-violence and peaceful protest. He dedicated his life to achieving equality and justice for all Americans of all colors. “MLK50 Forward: Together We Win With Love For Humanity” was the theme of The Martin Luther King Center for Nonviolent Social Change “(The King Center)” in Atlanta, Georgia as the center celebrated 50 years since opening its doors. Educating the world on the life, legacy and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the King Center is dedicated to inspiring new generations to carry forward his unfinished work, by strengthening causes and empowering change-makers who are continuing his efforts today.
Oratory Finalists will compete in a five-minute speech based on the theme, “As we continue with the legacy of Dr. King and if he were alive today, what dream would you personally discuss with him to promote and deliver to the people of the world in hopes of creating a better place for everyone to live in?” These inspiring young speakers will compete by delivering personally written speeches commemorating Dr. King’s ideals and principals by continuing to encourage his legacy of peace and unity.
