On Sunday, Jan. 14, the Marcus Center for Performing Arts, 929 N. Water St., will hosts the 34th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration at 1 p.m. in Uihlein Hall. The theme this year is “Take a Stand for Truth and Justice.” The event is free and open to the public.

The only cities that have celebrated Dr. King’s Birthday annually since 1984 are Atlanta, Georgia and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Always taking place in the month of January, this event focuses on keeping the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. alive. The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebration programming highlights the youth in our community who every year interpret Dr. King’s words through an art, speech and writing contest.

In addition, various cultural arts organizations take center stage in Uihlein Hall, truly demonstrating the excellence of our arts community.
