32 Annual MLK Leadership Awards Breakfast
January 15 at 7:30 a.m. 
The Coliseum 

Join the St. Petersburg Metropolitan Section of the National Council of Negro Women as they bring the St. Petersburg community together to remember the importance of Dr. King's work. "A leader of all people, Dr. King never chose fear, but always chose courage and determination when fighting for civil rights in the face of oppression, ignorance and violence. He refused to allow prison, violence or the threat of death sway his end mission." His legacy continues to demonstrate how we must continue to combat inequality today. This day also serves a a reminder that the holiday is a day on for community service initiatives and programs promoting interracial cooperation, not just a day off from work or school. Our keynote speaker this year is Rev. Dr. Kevin W. Cosby of Louisville, Kentucky.
