MLK60 Commemoration – Keynote Program with Martin Luther King, III

On November 8, 1961, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929–1968), the great civil rights leader, came to Seattle for his only visit. He was invited by the Rev. Dr. Samuel B. McKinney, then a young pastor at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Seattle’s Central District, who had been a classmate of Dr. King’s at Morehouse College and an Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity brother.

This November 6 – 8, 2021, join NAAM and community partners in commemorating Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic 1961 visit. This special community celebration will feature engaging and educational activities for youth and families that honor Dr. King’s commitment to service, leadership, and legacy.
