Pleasanton: Annual Martin Luther King Jr. fellowship breakfast going online

Jan. 25 event to include keynote address, Legacy Awards

The Pleasanton Community of Character Collaborative is set to hold the 21st annual Martin Luther King Jr. fellowship breakfast virtually later this month.

The morning event, which includes a keynote address and handing out the Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Awards, is scheduled for Jan. 25 from 8-9:30 a.m. online.

King is etched into world history as one of the most influential American civil rights leaders. The Nobel Peace Prize recipient, who would have marked his 91st birthday today, was assassinated in Memphis on April 4, 1968.

The annual fellowship breakfast is among the ways the Pleasanton community commemorates King's contributions each winter.

The fellowship breakfast will come one week after the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday, which the nation will recognize this coming Monday.
