The annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Event and Reception is our annual celebration of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

During the program, our keynote speaker, Police Commissioner William Gross, will speak about how his experience as the City of Boston's first African American Commissioner and how his work supports the continued dream of racial equity and collective liberation that Rev.
