The only cities that have celebrated Dr. King’s Birthday annually since 1984 are Atlanta, Georgia and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Always taking place in the month of January, this event focuses on keeping the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. alive. The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebration programming highlights the youth in our community who every year interpret Dr. King’s words through art, speech, and writing contests.

In addition, various cultural arts organizations take center stage in Uihlein Hall, truly demonstrating the excellence of our arts community. The event concludes with the Paulette Y. Copeland Reception in the Atrium.

The 36th Annual Dr. King Birthday celebration will be on January 19th, 2020.

The theme for this year is: "Your Life Has Significance".

Please join us on January 19th, 2020 from 1-3pm.
A reception will follow the presentations and performances.

Please wait while we gather your results.
