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 14, 2017 at the Dow Academic Center in Lake Jackson, TX. Cynthia Butler-McIntyre, 25th National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., was the guest speaker and Rho Xi’s own Bro. Frank Watson was the Master of Ceremonies. Rho Xi Chapter purchased a table for $350.00 and the Brothers in attendance volunteered by collecting tickets at the entrance. Rho Xi Chapter’s 2016 Talent Hunt Representative Julianna McKay sang the National Anthem.
