The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Committee (MLKCC) is a non-profit organization that exists to perpetuate the memory of Dr. King and his legacy of achievement to future generations. The MLKCC has sponsored events to celebrate the holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., such as a commemorative banquet and parade since 1986. The Commemorative Banquet was held January 13, 2018 at the Dow Academic Center in Lake Jackson, TX. Bro. Dr. Marcus Nelson, Ed.D., Superintendent of Waco Independent School District, was the keynote speaker. Rho Xi Chapter purchased a table for $350.00 and the Brothers in attendance volunteered by collecting tickets at the entrance and escorting attendees to their seats.
