Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Monday, Jan. 19 is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a federal holiday to honor the civil rights leader and Baptist minister. Dr. King fought the injustice of segregation and Jim Crow laws, inspired by his Christian faith.

Every year it’s important that we remember his work and the ongoing work of all who fight for civil rights, in this country and around the world. Dr. King especially challenged the church, writing from a Birmingham, Ala., jail cell to Christian leaders who questioned his protests and urged him to be patient:

“All too many others have been more cautious than courageous and have remained silent behind the anesthetizing security of stained-glass windows.”

May we never be silent in the face of injustice.

Twin Cities MLK Day Events

There are a number of events around the Twin Cities honoring Dr. King. It’s often said that Martin Luther King Jr. Day should be a “day on” and not just another day off. Consider ways you can volunteer and give back or attend one of the many events celebrating Dr. King’s legacy:

  • Luther Seminary is hosting a day-long conference that is free and open to the public. Speakers include author Christena Cleveland and pastor Alika Galloway.
  • The annual MLK Breakfast is held at the Minneapolis Convention Center, featuring a keynote by civil rights leader Vernon Jordan and music by Yolanda Adams. The event is broadcast live on TPT and also simulcast at local churches by the St. Paul Area Council of Churches. The breakfast also has a list of local service opportunities.
  • The Minneapolis Parks & Recreation Board hosts an annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration at Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center at 6:30 p.m. The event will include a keynote speaker, live entertainment, awards ceremony and food drive.
  • Augsburg College is hosting a Martin Luther King Jr. Convocation at 1 p.m., featuring original presentations and performances by students from Twin Cities-based interracial student leadership program, Dare 2 Be Real (D2BR); Augsburg’s Students for Racial Justice (SRJ); and renowned gospel choir Triad 4 Christ.
