Event description
From Resistance to Representation: Black Women Proving the Dream. A tribute to Black women in the struggle for social justice.

About this event

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Breakfast, founded by St. Cyprian's Episcopal Church and Union United Methodist Church 51 years ago, is the nation’s longest-running breakfast celebration. This year Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Breakfast Committee will present a vibrant event paying tribute to Black women throughout the arc of history who have shepherded the dream of social justice. In partnership with Northeastern University, the 52nd annual breakfast has been reimagined as a hybrid virtual event that will include our traditional multifaceted, passion-filled celebratory program, and an extended program of virtual teach-ins. This hybrid event will have the capacity to reach beyond Massachusetts to a national audience who will celebrate Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, and his legacy of social justice under the theme, From Resistance to Representation: Black Women Proving the Dream.

Senior opinion editor at the Boston Globe, Kimberly Atkins, will preside over the program beginning with a tribute to Black women by Senator Elizabeth Warren, then a conversation with women elected officials, followed by a keynote address from Annette Gordon-Reed, historian, Harvard Law professor and author of the acclaimed, On Juneteenth. Guests will also enjoy musical interludes and performances from the Berklee ensemble.

The event takes place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and tickets are $50. The virtual portion of the MLK Memorial Event is free this year, but we encourage donations to go towards continued support of scholarships and various grants to life-sustaining programs.

To observe health and safety standards there will be limited capacity at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Please register soon!

Registration and donation can be made at www.bostonmlkbreakfast.org.

If the Breakfast is changed to 100% virtual (due to a resurgence of the pandemic), in-person registrants would be able to attend remotely. Additionally, they would have the option of:

1. Receiving a full refund of their ticket(s) - within 30 days of the announcement of the change from hybrid to virtual.

2. Crediting ticket towards the 2023 Breakfast

3. Donating ticket cost to the Breakfast
