This is one of the oldest MLK commemorative organizations in Broward County, Florida. Our events are co-sponsored by the City of Pompano Beach and supported by sponsorships from local business and grants. Our Mission is to commemorate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through events that improve community relationships, education, public health, and the well-being of all communities.
The vision of the MLK Memorial Committee is to serve as the catalyst for greater cultural acceptance the community unification in Pompano Beach and its surrounding areas.
Join us in celebrating the 2019 Pompano MLK Celebration, this year themed, “A Celebration of Unity”. Dr. King left us his rich legacy of his philosophies, which included understanding the Triple Evils, the Six Principles of Nonviolence, the Six Step is of Nonviolent Social Change and the Beloved Community.
He also left us with his dream to achieve great things as one race, the human race; for us, as people, to live amongst each other, love one another and live in unity, and respect each other.
There is no time better than this time to reiterate the importance of his teachings and philosophies and to remind ourselves of how important it is for us to keep Dr. King’s legacy alive! His wisdom, guidance and sacrifice paved the way for many and open doors that would have never opened had he not knocked them down. It is without any doubt that as a people, united in love and respect, that we should do our very best to maintain every freedom and every right for our individual selves, and for our brothers, sisters and neighbors no matter their race, color or creed. We must celebrate unity.
