Event Series Event Series: Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

Martin Luther King Jr. 2024 Celebration

January 15 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join ECHO in hosting their 12th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration. This is a free admission day sponsored by the City of Burlington and hosted in collaboration with Clemmons Family Farm with additional programming by the Greater Multicultural Center and Sustainability Academy Student Chorus. This year’s family-friendly program highlights the tumultuous, brave, and inspiring periods of civil rights history, beginning with the Reconstruction Era of the 1800s up to present and future times.

The day will feature ten of Clemmons Family Farm’s fantastic collaborating artists, each in a “time capsule” that highlights civil rights milestones through curated posters that share some of the important backlashes and frontlashes in this history. The time capsule artists will co-create art with you in a way that intentionally helps you experience joy, unity, inspiration, and hope – all of which are important resilience skills for young and old.
