10th Annual Multicultural Breakfast

Leadership Memphis is honored to have Terri Freeman, President and CEO of the Civil Rights Museum, as the speaker for the 10th Annual Multicultural Breakfast presented by FedEx and International Paper on November 3, 2017, at the Holiday Inn - University of Memphis.

On April 4, 2018, all eyes will turn to Memphis, Tennessee to remember the tragic event that occurred 50 years prior. Our nation’s greatest peacemaker was snatched from us by a sniper’s bullet. It occurred at the Lorraine Motel, 450 Mulberry Street in Memphis, Tennessee, now, the location of the National Civil Rights Museum. That shot would reverberate throughout the world, and on April 4, 2018, the world remember the event that occurred at approximately 6:01 p.m. CT. The National Civil Rights Museum wants to help the world reflect, but not linger on the past, but instead use that horrific event to propel us forward.

MLK50: Where Do We Go From Here? Is the theme for the year-long commemoration of Dr. King’s assassination. This was the title of Dr. King’s final book as well as the title of the speech he delivered August 16, 1967 at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. In 2018, our desire is not simply to reflect and recount the history, but to connect the history to contemporary issues, this forward looking theme is most appropriate for this commemoration. The sub-themes for the events will be poverty/economic equity, education, justice and nonviolence.

The Multicultural Breakfast is open to the public. Registration and the breakfast buffet opens at 7:30 and the program begins promptly at 8:15 and ends at 9:30 am. This event is presented by FedEx and International Paper. Tickets are $50 per person or $500 per table of 10. Click on the Link below to RSVP.
