Olatheans and residents throughout the Greater Kansas City area are invited to join Olathe’s Human Relations Commission (OHRC) to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., at 12 p.m. on Jan. 17. The annual Martin Luther King (MLK) Celebration will be a virtual only event due to COVID-19 safety precautions and will be live-streamed at OlatheKS.org/OGN.
The event recognizes Olathe students who submitted essays, artwork, and multimedia entries, and will include musical performances from Olathe students.
Olathe’s King Celebration has grown to become one of the city’s most acclaimed events. The Celebration provides a platform where Olatheans of all ages can appreciate community efforts to quell bullying, discrimination, and mistreatment of others based on race, gender, or religious beliefs.
This event is presented by the Olathe’s Human Relations Commission in partnership with Garmin, Olathe Public Schools, and the Olathe Public Library
