Every year, The King Center leads the nation-wide observance of the national holiday commemorating
the birthday of my father, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the marquee events of The King Center's
week long holiday experience is the annual "Salute to Greatness" Awards Dinner. The Salute to
Greatness Award, given at the dinner, is one of the King Center's highest honors and is given to
individuals and progressive organizations in recognition of outstanding efforts toward building the beloved community to which Dr. King dedicated his life. It recognizes national and international individuals and organizations that exemplify excellence in leadership and have demonstrated a commitment to the principles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The King Center serves as the official living memorial to the life and legacy of my father. On a daily basis, we offer various experiences that highlight Dr. King's nonviolent philosophy and methodology and provide education and training on how to embrace this philosophy and methodology, which The King Center calls Nonviolence 365. In an effort to meet this challenge, we develop resources and innovative initiatives that educate people from all over the world about the significance of my father's teachings and equip them to utilize those lessons in addressing our world's most pressing challenges. We hope that you will consider becoming a Legacy Sponsor of the "Salute to Greatness" Dinner. Your support helps us to continue and expand our Nonviolence 365 Initiatives.
