the scoop:

The City of Tacoma’s signature event – the 30th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration – seeks to build on that message by highlighting young men of color as community assets and encourages the entire community to join together to celebrate Monday, January 15, 2018 as a day on, not a day off.

The event will feature keynote speaker Nate Bowling, the 2014 recipient of the Milken Family Foundation’s National Educator Award, the 2016 Washington State Teacher of the Year and currently teaching advanced placement courses at Lincoln High School in Tacoma.

The celebration will include music, dance, and poetry that highlight the strength, resiliency and creativity of young men of color. Performances will focus on Dr. King’s relationship with communities, how he challenged and changed our nation and his message to honor the dignity and rights of every person.

Door open at 10 a.m.; ceremony starts at 11 a.m.
