In 2019, fifty one years will have passed since the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We hope you will join Contra Costa County on Tuesday, January 22, at 11 am to pay tribute to Dr. King's life and legacy.
The theme of the event is “the Dream Starts with Me”. The celebration will feature keynote speaker, Sheryl Lane, executive director of Building Blocks for Kids, a nonprofit organization in Richmond, CA.
The program includes entertainment from students from Contra Costa School of Performing Arts and the Los Medanos College Gospel Choir. After the commemoration, join us outside Board Chambers for a free buffet lunch, complete with peach cobbler for dessert.
