MLK 50

MLK 50

Reference of 2018 events commemorating the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hope is a leading church in Memphis, passionate about spiritual and racial reconciliation as well as biblical justice and equity issues. Thus, as a member of the corporate community, we want to lead by example. Hosting certain events does NOT constitute an endorsement of a particular organization’s methods; we host some events because we share some, not necessarily all, common missional ideals for our beloved city.  

Note: The list below is not exhaustive. Many other important events are happening in our city January 1 - April 4. Please consult each organization’s websites for more details.
