THE COURAGE TO LEAD WITH A GREATER DETERMINATION
"If you Can't Fly, then Run, if you Can't Run, then Walk; if you Can't Walk, then Crawl; but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward" - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
On behalf of the entire Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Commission we would like to welcome you and invite you to join us for our Upcoming Commemoration. In 2019 we will observe our 37th Annual King Week Celebration. Our 2019 theme, The Courage to Lead with a Greater Determination , is attributed to the Dream and the Dreamer who affirmed, “If you Can't Fly, then Run, if you Can't Run, then Walk; if you Can't Walk, then Crawl; but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward".
Since 1982, the MLK Commission has been organizing a special celebration each year for the Knoxville area to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The weeklong celebration focuses on providing education and leadership training for adults and youth and promotes reconciliation through peaceful conflict resolution. Part of the celebration also includes stories of racial struggles with emphasis on non-violence, equality, and love.
