MOVING ON TOWARDS FREEDOM, JUSTICE, AND EQUALITY
"True peace is not merely the absence
of tension; it is the presence of justice" -
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 King Week Celebration. In 2023 we will observe our 41st Annual King Week Celebration. Our 2023 theme, MOVING ON TOWARDS FREEDOM, JUSTICE, AND EQUALITY, is attributed to the Dream and the Dreamer who affirmed, "Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. And Justice is really love in calculation. Justice is love correcting that which revolts against love."
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.
We invite you to join us as we Celebrate and Commemorate. We look forward to seeing you. Feel free to Contact Us if we can provide additional assistance or information. Thank you.
