    • 21 Jan 2019
    • 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
    • Duluth Entertainment & Convention Center


    Join us at our MLK Rally on January 21 at 12PM located at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center 350 Harbor Dr Duluth, MN, United States, 55802. Our Keynote Speaker is Me'Lea Connelly, and our emcee will be Tolu Ekisola. Performers will include Dee VanDassor & Joyce who will sing the Negro National Anthem, ARE Poets, and Majur Attraktion Dance Group.

    The Drum Major for Peace Awards will be announced and presented and the new NAACP Executive Officers will be installed. There will be children’s activities, a selfie photo booth, vendors, and free MLK buttons while supplies last outside the DECC hall before and shortly after the Rally.

    This year's theme comes from an article by Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., submitted for publication in March 1958. In the full title, “The Current Crisis in Race Relations,” King tells us that the crisis had been affirmed by the reactions of the country to the Supreme Court’s decision to integrate schools. King goes on to explain that the crisis not only exists because of White resistance but because Black people saw themselves as equals; making it impossible to accept the system of segregation.

    Dr. King also speaks to the theological reasoning for nonviolence and integration. He believed that nonviolence was simply Christianity in action –“passive physically” but “aggressive spiritually.” Nonviolence combats the evil committed by individuals rather than combating the individuals committing evil. King says “ The tension is at bottom between justice and injustice, between the forces of light and the forces of darkness. And if there is a victory it will be a victory, not merely for fifty thousand Negroes, but a victory for justice and the forces of light.”

    The Rally will begin promptly at 12 pm.

    The rally will be interpreted into American Sign Language and recorded for broadcast.
