MLK CELEBRATION

The evolution of Scottsdale's MLK Celebration was initiated by CCD’s founding members, Sandra Rembrandt and Don Logan. Their vision was for Scottsdale to host its own Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration. In the early 1990’s, members from across the valley traveled to Phoenix to celebrate Dr. King’s birthday. They had a passion for Dr. King’s legacy and felt citizens from the Scottsdale community would take pride in hosting a celebration in its own community. Today, Scottsdale’s celebration serves as a signature celebration for the entire valley that includes nationally renowned speakers representing a myriad of diversity perspectives honoring the history and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
