Every year the Homestead and Florida City communities come together to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a free community breakfast. This year, the event will take place at 7AM on Friday, January 18th at the Phichol Williams Community Center (951 SW 4th ST, Homestead, FL 33030).
This annual gathering is a morning of celebration and contemplation as everyone from distinguished dignitaries to the youngest children reflect on the struggles of the past and dreams for the future. This year’s theme is drawn from Dr. King’s final book, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?, in which he calls for all Americans to unite in order to fight poverty and create equal opportunity for all.
Headlining the event will be Keynote Speaker Reverend Doctor Alphonso Jackson of Second Baptist Church. The program will also recognize the significant impacts of several community leaders.
The Breakfast is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is requested. Please RSVP at www.cityofhomestead.com/mlk.
