Here are some resources for service activities in Boston celebrating MLK Day (click on links)
Boston is a special place to celebrate Dr. King’s life and legacy. King considered Boston his second home, the city where he met his wife Coretta Scott King and where he earned his Ph.D. in Theology from Boston University while living on Mass Ave. Roxbury is where Dr. King was an assistant minister at the Twelfth Baptist Church, it is the specific neighborhood where he and Coretta met, and also where he began an historic Boston march in 1965, a procession that culminated on Boston Common where Dr. King delivered an inspiring and iconic speech. The Roxbury Love Story mural by local artists @problak and @gofive was unveiled in the fall of 2020.
