MLK Day Events
We celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with events and festivities around DFW.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” Each year, Americans from across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.
