35th Annual Commemoration, Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday

Reflections on Accountability

Video Premiere: Monday, January 17, 1:00 pm

Many of us watched the trial and conviction of former police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd and shared a renewed national commitment of leaders and citizens to engage in the work of dismantling systemic racism. Thus, our theme for this year’s King Holiday service will focus on accountability and its connection to justice.

Please join us for a video presentation on Monday, January 17, 2022, at 1:00 pm for our 35th annual service honoring the life and legacy of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther, King, Jr.

Featured speakers include The Rev. Cheryl Harris, poet Christopher E. Johnson, municipal leaders from the Greater Attleboro community, plus musical performances of the Brockton High School Choir and soloist Christopher Gillard.

Watch the service on any of these platforms:
