The 36th Martin Luther King Jr. Community Breakfast Remained a Fixture in 2021

January 2021

This year's Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Community Breakfast was held in a remote format, yet there was nothing remote about the sentiment expressed at the 36th Community Breakfast, honoring the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

QCC has traditionally held the breakfast at the College; however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the event was held virtually on Zoom. This year’s  featured keynote speaker was Rev. John H. Vaughn, executive pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. The Ebenezer Baptist Church was the spiritual home of the Rev. Martin Luther King Sr. and Rev Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, and remains at the forefront of the fight for individual growth and social transformation. 

In addition to the virtual breakfast program,  the event featured the release of the first Worcester “Black History Moment,” a video presentation of the Worcester Black History Project, a collaboration with the Worcester Historical Museum. 

"Each year this event reminds us of the power of Dr. King's legacy," said President Luis G. Pedraja, Ph.D. "We cannot stand for racial inequity. Until we can realize an equitable future for everyone, there is much work to be done."
