Walker Legacy Center to celebrate MLK Day of Celebration in style

Award-winning social justice leader and movement strategist Tamika D. Mallory will speak at the 41st Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Celebration at the Madam Walker Legacy Center at noon Monday, Jan. 16. The event will return for the first time since the pandemic in the historic Walker Theatre. In addition to being honored as one of Time magazine’s “100,” Mallory has been featured on Fortune’s list of the world’s greatest leaders, hailed as one of the generation’s most influential Black voices.

She made history when she helped shepherd the largest single-day demonstration, the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, serving as one of its four national co-chairs. She also served as the youngest-ever executive director of the National Action Network. 

“We can’t think of anyone better than Tamika D. Mallory to headline our annual MLK Day of Celebration in 2023,” said MWLC President Kristian Little Stricklen. “Her impact on the national stage in advocacy and social justice is representative of Dr. King’s values. She stirs movements, and that’s the kind of person we need to continue his legacy.”

This event will be staged in partnership with the Indianapolis Public School District, celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
