Update: MLK, Jr. Awards Event
The 43rd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Awards will be held on Saturday, March 9 from 1:30 to 3 pm at the Radisson Hotel at 8 Traders Circle, Normal. This event was originally scheduled for January 12 at the Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Normal but was rescheduled due to weather. The event, hosted by the City of Bloomington Human Relations Commission in partnership with the Town of Normal Human Relations Commission, is one of the oldest programs in the nation that honors the legacy of Dr. King. This year's event format will be a reception with refreshments rather than a luncheon.
This year’s keynote speaker is Garry Moore, recently retired WEEK-TV news anchor and community advocate.
Information about tickets is available online from the event’s website: www.mlkawards.com. Tickets are also available from the Human Resources department at City Hall.
