33rd annual Ohio Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Celebration

January 11 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

  • Sumo

The highlight of this program are four Ohio youth who will share their winning essays from last April’s Statewide MLK Oratorical Contest. Also recognized will be the accomplishments of five distinguished Ohio residents and two accomplished Ohio organizations who will receive awards for carrying on Dr. King’s legacy. The Fort Hayes Arts and Academic High School choir also will perform at the celebration.

The theme of this year’s event is “MLK50: Legacy of Love in Pursuit of Justice.” The Ohio Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Commission, which sponsors the annual celebration as well as the Statewide MLK Oratorical Contest held in April, chose this theme to mark the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s untimely passing, summarizing the impact of his life’s work in the ensuing 50 years.
