6th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Event & Scholarship
The City of Antioch and the Antioch Unified School District, along
with community partners and sponsors, will present the 6th annual
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration & Scholarship Awards in the Deer Valley
High Theater (4700
Lone Tree Way), on January 20th, 2014, at 1:00 PM.
Keynote Speaker Author Maggie
Anderson has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, BET News and CBS
Morning News, among many other national television and radio shows.
She has become the leader of a 'conscious consumerism' movement that
supports quality black business and mainstream companies with
substantive supplier diversity.
This celebration began in 2009 with Antioch City Council Member
Reggie Moore’s desire to celebrate Dr. King’s historical
contributions, along with creating a scholarship program for high
school and middle school students. The tradition continues
under the leadership of Mayor Wade Harper and partnership with the
Antioch Unified School District, along with the support of business and community leaders.
This event is sponsored by the City of Antioch, Antioch Unified
School District, CCC Supervisor District V Federal Glover, PG&E,
NAACP East County, Republic Services,
