One of the nation’s oldest events celebrating the life of iconic Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. is the Hub’s very own MLK Memorial Breakfast at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center on January 21. This 49th annual gathering features local and national civic and religious leaders who speak about MLK’s impact on history and today’s world. Another ticketed event is the She Persisted: 16th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Tribute Concert by Boston Children’s Chorus at Symphony Hall at 7 p.m. that honors the Civil Rights Movement’s female heroes, while the free annual MLK Tribute Concert by Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras presented in conjunction with the Museum of African American History and the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture takes place at Boston University's George Sherman Union (775 Commonwealth Ave.) at 1 p.m. The Museum of Fine Arts even features gratis admission at its annual MLK Day Open House.
