This year's theme: “Out of a Mountain of Despair, a Stone of Hope.”
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Bernice A. King, the youngest child of civil rights leaders Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King. Dr. Bernice King is a global thought leader, orator, peace advocate, and Chief Executive Officer of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change (The King Center), which was founded by her mother, Coretta Scott King, in 1968. She was appointed CEO of The King Center in January 2012, by the Board of Trustees. From this position, the same one once held by her mother, this transformative leader steadfastly continues her efforts to advance her parents’ legacy of Kingian Nonviolence, which Dr. King re-branded Nonviolence365™️.
