The City of Jacksonville invites you to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the 35th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast presented by Florida Blue, streaming live on Friday, January 14, 2022.
The YouTube livestream pre-show will begin at 8 a.m. and the live program will begin at 8:30 a.m.
The virtual event will feature Mayor Lenny Curry and newly announced keynote speaker, Bonnie St. John. Despite having her right leg amputated at age five, St. John became the first African-American ever to win medals in Winter Olympic competition, taking home a silver and two bronze medals at the 1984 Paralympics in Austria. Today, she is a best-selling author, keynote speaker, television and radio personality, business owner, and Fortune 500 leadership consultant. This year the celebration will be host by Dawn Lopez from Action News Jax and Anthony Austin from First Coast News.
In addition to the keynote speaker, the program will include spotlights of our 2022 Tomorrow’s Leaders presented by VyStar Credit Union award recipients. This component recognizes and awards young students in our community who exemplify the philosophies of Dr. King through leadership, community volunteerism and civic responsibility.
