About this Event
Join us for The People’s Holiday

Coretta Scott King said this of Martin Luther King Day “It is a day of interracial and intercultural cooperation and sharing. No other day of the year brings so many peoples from different cultural backgrounds together in such a vibrant spirit of brother and sisterhood. Whether you are African-American, Hispanic or Native American, whether you are Caucasian or Asian-American, you are part of the great dream Martin Luther King, Jr. had for America. This is not a black holiday; it is a peoples’ holiday. And it is the young people of all races and religions who hold the keys to the fulfillment of his dream.” 

• Listen to music performed by Howard University's outstanding music students.
• Participate in a Day of Service by helping create warm no-sew fleece scarves and hats to be donated to those in need
