World Arts Foundation Inc. announces the annual tribute to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

Since 1976, this community event has celebrated Oregon’s African-American community. The event honors pioneering activists, community leaders, artists, musicians, and youth whose valiant efforts have left lasting impacts in Oregon’s African-American community. Here’s a link to a historical film documenting the program’s legacy.

This family-friendly event took place Saturday, February 17th 2024 from 1-5pm at Highland Christian Center (7600 NE Glisan St. Portland, OR 97213). On stage, the program featured performances and speakers!

Additionally, the event’s Victory Village marketplace housed vendors, regional agencies, and artists.

Take a listen! We procured exclusive interviews with Black leaders, activists, artists, pioneers and politicians.
