24th Annual 2021 Piedmont MLK Celebration

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Monday, Jan 18, 11am-12:30pm Pacific time

Reimagining a society shaped at the intersection of power, love and justice is the focus of Piedmont's 24th annual MLK Day Celebration. More than 50 years later, King's exhaustive list of challenges to be dissatisfied with in America-insular wealth and desperate poverty, inadequate housing, segregated schools, to name a few-still exist today. Each of us has the power to step up and take action to create change. "[T]here is a creative force in this universe working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows." We are the power.

This year's program, co-sponsored by Piedmont Anti-Racism and Diversity Committee and the City of Piedmont, will feature stirring performances by traditional Native American flutist Vince Redhouse and Destiny Arts Youth Performance Company. Speakers will include Congresswoman Barbara Lee; Stanford Professor and King Institute Director Clayborne Carson; and filmmaker and World Trust Founder Shakti Butler.
