mlk day virtual celebration at museum of fine arts mfa voices on king photoJoin us online to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by surrounding yourself with art, culture, and community.

The program, titled “Voices on King,” brings together nonprofit, corporate, and community leaders to share their personal reflections on the current impact and lasting legacies of Dr. King and Mrs. Coretta Scott King.

The event also features a musical performance by Danny Rivera and an original poem by poet Porsha Olayiwola.

This year's virtual celebration, streaming here and on Facebook and YouTube, is on Monday, January 18, 2021.
