About Martin Luther King III:
Martin Luther King III is carrying the torch lit by both of his parents into the 21st century. Martin’s dedication to creating and implementing strategic nonviolent action to rid the world of social, political, and economic injustice has propelled him to the forefront as one of the nation’s most ardent advocates for the poor, the oppressed, and the disillusioned.
This virtual event is brought to you free of charge through the generous support of sponsors.
Event proceeds will be used to support the McCrorey YMCA with programs that have positive impact on youth and families in the northwest corridor such as teen leadership development programs and others.
