The annual Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Breakfast in Boston will mark its 50th anniversary in 2020 with a celebratory program highlighted by this year's keynote speaker, Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry.
King contemporaries, elected officials, local faith leaders and other special guests will share recollections of King and his work. Other scheduled participants include Governor Charlie D. Baker, Mayor Martin J. Walsh, U.S. Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren and U.S. Senator Edward J. Markey. The breakfast also features MC Shayna Seymour, co-anchor of WCVB’s nightly news magazine, Chronicle, and live gospel music.
This annual event was founded by St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church and Union United Methodist Church. Net proceeds support those churches' community programs and services. The event attracts an audience of about 1,500 people, including business, civic, community and religious leaders, as well as educational and community organizations from across Massachusetts.
