Each year Muskegon Community College hosts a county-wide breakfast in celebration of the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  This event brings students, community leaders, organizations, and local residents together to hear from current freedom activists as they maintain the foundation of Dr. King’s beliefs.  The goal of the MLK Unity Breakfast is to promote equality and justice for all people.

MCC hosted the 21st annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Breakfast on Jan. 13, 2017. The event featured a presentation by Alvin Herring, the director of racial equity and community engagement at the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

Herring  provides strategic oversight to a programming team and grant portfolios related to racial equity, racial healing and community engagement that advance the Kellogg Foundation’s mission to support children, families and communities as they strengthen and create conditions that propel vulnerable children to achieve success in school, work and life.
