Montgomery County’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. tribute took place Monday at The Music Center at Strathmore. The theme of the 2023 program was “We are Martin.”
The annual celebration spotlights Dr. King’s life through music, art, dance, and performance and coincides with the national Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday. A visual arts exhibit prepared by Montgomery County students interpreting the theme “We are Martin” was on display.
Here is the tribute in its entirety:
The annual Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Tribute and Celebration was presented by the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Committee (MLKCC). MLKCC was established by the Montgomery County Council in 1976 to foster our local community observance and recognition of the outstanding contributions of Dr. King. Montgomery County pays special tribute to him for having awakened our nation to the need for nonviolent social change and racial equality.
