The Spady Cultural Heritage Museum begins each year with a signature event celebrating the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. At each annual breakfast, there is featured entertainment, live music and poetry presentations, along with honored speakers who share their perspectives on Dr. King’s legacy. The event includes a full breakfast buffet & beverages. A seat is waiting for you at this family-focused celebration of Dr. King’s Legacy!
DOWN THROUGH THE YEARS
The annual January breakfast event has swelled to welcome more than 150 people from Palm Beach and Broward counties to the Delray Beach Golf Club, after beginning in 2000 as a ‘home-style’ breakfast and film-showing at Old School Square.
The Spady Museum’s celebration has become a ‘must-attend’ occasion for the community and is regularly attended by county and city government heads, civic and church leaders, as well as representatives from education, art & culture and other nonprofit organizations.
In previous years, the MLK Breakfast has featured musical selections by The Pasco Baker Concert Choir and “Double Trouble” twin singers Rashad and Tashad Gardenhire and presentations by winners of the Palm Beach Poetry Festival and Knights of Pythagoras’ South Florida Youth Speak Out! oratorical contest, Delray Beach Commissioner Angeleta Gray, Dr. Henrietta Smith of the University of South Florida and Dr. Art Evans of Florida Atlantic University.
