Celebrating the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Boston
A milestone in recognizing the impact of iconic Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. takes place on January 20, the day set aside in his honor, when the 50th annual MLK Memorial Breakfast once again takes place at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, highlighted by a keynote address by The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry. That’s not the only way the city celebrates its one-time resident that day, however. There’s also the free afternoon MLK, Jr. Tribute Concert at Faneuil Hall by the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras held in partnership with the Museum of African American History, as well as the 17th annual tribute concert by the Boston Children’s Chorus at Symphony Hall themed Still I Rise later that evening. To top it off, the Museum of Fine Arts offers free admission, performances, tours and more all day long.
