33rd Annual MLK Leadership Awards Breakfast
January 21 at 7:30 a.m. 
The Coliseum 

Join us as we 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.One of his most notable quotes,"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere", echoes Dr, King's life's mission to eradicate injustice.  This day also serves as 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. Frederick D. Haynes, III, Senior Pastor of Friendship-West of Dallas, Texas.
