You’re invited to join us in honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through an interfaith community breakfast that includes dynamic speakers, inspirational music and a delicious hot breakfast served at 7 a.m.
This is the 8th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Breakfast for the Northeast Suburbs. This year’s theme is “The Time Is Always Right To Do What Is Right.” The breakfast is sponsored by White Bear Unitarian Universalist Church in partnership with Interfaith Action of Greater St. Paul and Twin Cities Public Television.
Our guest speaker this year is Jason Sole. He teaches criminal justice at Hamline University and is the incoming president of the Minneapolis NAACP. A former drug dealer, gang member and felon, Sole works to help young people turn their lives around. He is the author of a 2014 autobiography, “From Prison to Ph.D.: A Memoir of Hope, Resilience, and Second Chances.” He is in the final phase of earning his Ph.D. at Capella University in criminal justice and public safety leadership.
Attendees also will watch a big screen broadcast of keynote speaker Myrlie Evers-Williams, author, civil rights activist and wife of murdered civil rights activist Medgar Evers, speaking from downtown Minneapolis at the 27th annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Breakfast, sponsored by UNCF and the General Mills Foundation.
Everyone is welcome. Tickets are $5 for the hot breakfast at 7 a.m. Children 12 and under are free but need a ticket reservation for breakfast. The program, which starts at 7:30 a.m., is free and open to the public.
