THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
for making the 2021 MLK Celebration possible!
Our inaugural MLK Celebration was one of the first national tributes of its kind. First held on January 15, 1972, this regional event has grown to encompass 10 days each January and is the largest MLK celebration in South Carolina.
Charleston's support for this tribute humbles us. Each year the 10-day event attracts thousands of celebrants from across the state. On MLK Day, an estimated 3,000 people cheer on nearly 200 bands, marchers, floats, and groups as the MLK Parade is televised live on the news. Along with the mayor of Charleston, nearly 700 community and business leaders attend the MLK Business and Professional Breakfast (now the MLK Summit) each year.
OUR 2021 SPONSORS
We're grateful to all the organizations who are supporting racial equality by signing up to sponsor the 2021 MLK Celebration... not just with lip service, but with real funds that help us support our mission to eliminate racism in the tri-county region and bring visibility to Charleston's continuing fight for racial equity.
We'd love it you'd consider supporting these organizations with your business and thanks!
