Our mission is to provide an organized platform for the encouragement, creation and support of commemorative historical and educational programs on the anniversary of the tragic assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4th, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee. The Foundation will also facilitate and encourage community and national development of programs and events that serve to celebrate and reaffirm the Foundation's collective belief in economic justice and equality for all.
The 2017 Keynote Speaker and I AM A MAN Award Honorees are Diane Judith Nash and Rep. Charles B. Rangel and Open Door Award Honoree Glenda Baskin Glover.
The Foundation provides recognition through the issuance of awards to acknowledge and promote excellence in the field of economic justice and equality as Dr.King dreamed.
The I AM A MAN Award- This award is presented to those individuals who continue to strive to keep Dr. Martin
Luther King’s “Dream” alive and to bring it into being. The I AM A MAN Award was trademarked by the Foundation in 2003.
