Description

Celebrating twenty-five years of excellence and service, part of the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission’s purpose as a state agency of Arkansas is to develop, coordinate, and advise the Governor and General Assembly throughout the state and throughout the year of public community outreach activities relating to the observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his noble tenets.

Throughout his years of social leadership, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. encouraged all people to address pressing social ills through citizen service. As he once said, “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve.” (Excerpted from “The Drum Major Instinct”, a sermon by Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1968 Available in A Knock at Midnight: Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.)

We are pleased to announce that the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission will host monumental events on Monday, January 21, 2019, King Holiday, commemorating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Mark your calendar for the observance of the congressionally legislated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This United States holiday marks the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and is observed on the third Monday of January each year.

At this time, we kindly request your attendance at this highly anticipated event, which brings together the public service, religious, and business community along with heads of state to reflect on their roles as public servants and Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy of hope, faith and unity. The 2019 Annual Interfaith Prayer Breakfast will take place on King Holiday, Monday, January 21, 2019, 7:00 AM-7:50 AM, Saint Mark Baptist Church Family Life Center, 5722 West 12th Street, Little Rock, Arkansas 72201. The keynote speaker will be Honorable State Representative Jamie Scott. Due to limited seating, early reservations are strongly recommended. If you plan to bring a guest, we will also need their name. You may RSVP through this website. Award-winning gospel artist Melvin Williams will also perform live.

We thank you in advance for joining us in events that help the present and the next generation achieve Dr. King’s dreams of understanding and acceptance of nonviolence and human equality as a way of building unity among all Arkansans. Remember the King Holiday as Dr. King would want us to remember it as, “A DAY ON, NOT A DAY OFF.
