Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Jan. 16 celebrates the life and legacy of a man who brought hope and healing to America. We commemorate and praise the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service that so radiantly defined Dr. King’s character and empowered his leadership.

On this holiday, we commemorate the universal, unconditional love, forgiveness and nonviolence that empowered his revolutionary spirit. As numerous events take place to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. the Office of Diversity and Inclusion has compiled a guide of celebrations for this year’s MLK Day in the City of Wichita.
