The City of Jacksonville invites you to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the 34th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast presented by Florida Blue.

The 34th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast presented by Florida Blue will feature a panel of community leaders that will be discussing racial injustice, education, healthcare, economic mobility and other moderated questions.

Our panelists include City of Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry, Superintendent of Duval County Public Schools and 2021 Florida Superintendent of the Year Dr. Diana Greene, UF Health CEO Dr. Leon Haley and United Way of Northeast Florida President and CEO Michelle Braun. The event will be hosted and moderated by Joy Purdy from News4Jax and Anthony Austin from First Coast News.

The breakfast event will be streamed live on Friday, Jan. 15, 2021 directly from the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center.
