The City of Carson will be presenting its Annual Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with an evening celebration in honor of the late civic leader.

The event is scheduled on Friday, January 12 at 6 p.m. at the Carson Event Center. The event is free and open to the public.

This year’s event features live entertainment, essay contest winners, insightful speeches, and a very special video presentation featuring Carson residents.

“Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy is more than his I have a Dream Speech. His legacy is a true testimony to how far we have come today as a nation. Dr. King transformed society and his legacy to me is a legacy of gratitude. His commitment and plea to our leaders to find a collective solution to the problems that he faced doing his lifetime are still prevalent today. Dr. King stood for true equality for all,” said Carson Mayor Lula Davis-Holmes.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. event is an annual year-opener for the City of Carson.
