Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration

The youth group invites congregants to join them for the Bristol celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Complete information about the event is on Facebook at:

The Bristol Train Station Board and YWCA will host a community observance of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The commemoration event will be held on the national King holiday on Monday 1/15/18 (1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.) The theme, “The Legacy Lives” reminds us that the work Dr. King began is still important and unfinished. The celebration will bring greater awareness to Dr. King’s work and mission, promote unity and diverse participation within our community, educate, encourage and inspire deeper community dialogue, and help us to learn from the past. The program will begin with a march which will replicate a similar march held 10 years ago when the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard was named.

Church marchers will meet at 1:30 p.m. at the YMCA on MLK Blvd in Bristol, TN

* Both TN & VA march will begin at 2:00 p.m. and conclude under the Bristol VA/TN sign on State Street for a photo
* Program at Bristol Train Station will begin at 2:30 p.m. and conclude around 3:30 p.m.
