29th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast Celebration

The Frankford Coalition of Neighbors announces the Twenty-Ninth Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast Celebration in Frankford. The FREE event is held at Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter School located at 4290 Penn Street, on the corners of Church and Penn Streets on Monday, January 19, 2015.

The doors open at 8:30 a.m. for this unique event which offers Frankford Residents, Neighborhood-based Organizations, Educational Institutions, Religious Congregations, Small Business Owners, Community Activists and anyone seeking information about improving their quality of life and better relations among diverse groups within the Frankford neighborhood. With a theme that asks “What would Dr. King hope for in 2015?”, this celebration includes a free breakfast, youth performances and community information.

In lieu of a keynote speaker, we are highlighting a commentary by youth leaders from Sankofa Freedom Academy upper school about the “Black Lives Matter” campaign and their participation in the recent racially inspired protests. Performances and program participants include Frankford High School ROTC and Dance Group, and Sankofa Freedom Academy.

The Frankford Coalition of Neighbors is a civic organization working to improve relations among the diverse economic, racial and ethnic groups in Frankford, while promoting volunteerism and community coalition. The MLK Celebration is an expression of the Coalition’s mission, which hopes to generate positive social change in order to create a more just, responsive, peaceful and cooperative community for all Frankford residents.
