While he passed away too soon, Dr. King’s legacy lives on. And on Jan. 20, 2020, families in southeast Michigan can celebrate his life through a variety of special programs, volunteer opportunities and more.

While kids are off from school, parents can use this day as a way to talk about race and diversity. For those in Macomb County looking to get out in the community to honor Dr. King, browse this list of MLK Day events in Macomb County.
