Virtual Celebration of Dr. King’s Life to be held on Monday, January 18

The City of Glen Cove and Glen Cove School District with program support from the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Birthday Commission is proud to announce the 37th city-wide tribute to a man whose leadership, life and legacy elevated the critical importance of civil rights and equality for all.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program will be held virtually via Zoom on Monday, January 18 at 10:00 a.m., with uplifting music, dance, and spoken word.

The commemorative program will dynamically bring to life the theme of this year’s presentation, “His Truth is Marching On,” with young people sharing their words, music and dance with the Glen Cove community.  “Although we will not have our annual pre-program symbolic march or be able to present an in-person program due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Commission has prepared a wonderful virtual program for presentation to our city and beyond,” said Sheryl Goodine, Commission Chairperson.

“I want to recognize the work of our dedicated volunteers of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Birthday Commission for ensuring that Dr. King’s legacy continues to be honored and celebrated,” said Glen Cove Mayor Tim Tenke. “All are welcome to tune in for this important event.”
