“The time is always right to do what is right.”
—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

KST celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with inspiring performances and activities for all ages highlighting the value and strength of individuals and the community of East Liberty. This year’s event features the theme, Together, We Build Community, as a platform to come together and imagine the future – for ourselves, our neighborhood and beyond.

“As we think about the future of our city, bringing people together, with shared values or at the very least, common purpose, matters more than ever. There is no better time than now.” – KST Executive Director, janera solomon.

We mark The 8th annual East Liberty Celebrates MLK Day by showcasing the positive impacts that neighborhood organizations, community mobilizers, and innovative performers make within our community. Enjoy MLK themed activity tables, performances and conversation throughout the day.
