Takes place in Historic Downtown Wilmington\; Parade startin
g point at Front Street & Hanover Street.
The Martin Luther Kin g Jr. Celebration Committee is proud to continue their work in the celebra tion and honor of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. While they have long had a wonderful parade commemorating his life\, legacy\, and birthda y\, they are now committed to extending that celebration into a week of mo tivational events to raise awareness and motivate the community. Please vi sit the website for more information on all of these events at www.mlkjrce lebration-senc10.com.
The actions of the Reverend Dr. Marti n Luther King Jr. (MLK) brought about significant changes in the lives o f all Americans. Therefore the MLK Celebration Committee\, a subcommit tee under the African American Heritage Foundation of Wilmington\, Inc \, (AAHFW) representing the Greater Wilmington area seek to pay homage t o an American hero through educational seminars\, religion events\, ar t and culture events\, displays and social gatherings which enhance the quality of life in our communities.
The AAHFW was founded to fill a void in our community. So sponsoring this week of events perfectly fits our mission and helps to build our capacity to do even more to addre ss and improve racial relations\, community and visibility of the positive achievements and contributions of African Americans throughout our histor y. We seek to incorporate health and wellness concerns in our annual celeb ration.
Wilmington is a particularly important place to fully c ommemorate the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. because of the continu ing impact of the 1898 coup d’etat\, overthrowing an elected African A mericans government\, which radically disenfranchised African Americans here. These actions and inactions costed many their lives and many more their rightfully owned land. In addition\, the heroic efforts of the Wil mington Ten\, who fought tirelessly to desegregate the local schools\, m ust be remembered. A little known fact is that Dr. King was due to arriv e in Wilmington\, NC but postponed his arrival to assist striking sanita tion workers with their issue in Memphis\, Tennessee where he met his un timely demise.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is a well known and acce
pted national hero\, and his birthday is an opportunity to bring people
together and help everyone again understand the context and history surr
ounding his life from the perspective of Southeastern North Carolina. It
is our hope to be able to build from this week of events to other event
s which allow us to more fully commemorate additional important figures
and events in African American
19th Annual Coming Together Conference. A conference to cele
brate and renew our commitment to working together to improve the lives of

at is to provide our community with the latest information about a variety
of disability issues and presentations about strategies proven to work.
