The Homestead and Florida City communities will unite to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the annual MLK Community Breakfast Friday, January 12, 2024, from 7 am to 9 am at the Phichol Williams Community Center, located at 951 SW 4th Street, Homestead, Florida 33030.
The theme for the event, "Equity in Education: Bridging History and Progress," will shed light on the significance of equal and equitable access to education and its importance to ongoing civil rights movements across the nation. This year's commemoration will honor both the enduring legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and acknowledge the 70th anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision that brought education to the forefront of the civil rights movement.
The event serves as an opportunity for the community to come together, reflect on Dr. King's teachings, and celebrate the advancements made in education while acknowledging the work that still lies ahead to achieve true equity in educational opportunities.
The Homestead – Florida City Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Breakfast welcomes individuals from all backgrounds to join in this meaningful occasion and engage in thought-provoking conversations centered around educational equity. The City of Homestead would like to extend a thank you to our event sponsor The Palace Gardens for their continued support.
