Staff PickMLK2018 San Francisco – The Urgency of Now

January 12 - 15


Share this page:
The Northern California Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Foundation – NorcalMLK - hosts San Francisco’s annual MLK celebrations. 2018 marks the Fiftieth year since the assassination of Dr. King, and NorcalMLK will spend the entire year in programs and projects designed to reflect on our society: where it has come, and where we want it to go. It begins with our MLK2018 events.

Our MLK2018 theme is The Urgency of Now. This current season has manifested an unease with our domestic and international social condition, politics, and economy. And, a return to a past era of intolerance and despair has given voice to some of our nation’s worst instincts. And yet, we must continue to speak to those things that undergird our determination to nourish that which is the best in the human personality. For, “the arch of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice,” a justice that marks a beloved community.
