Description

The 10th Annual MLK Unity Breakfast will be held on January 18, 2016 to recognize and celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King and his historic civic leadership that inspired a nation to strive for equality. This gathering honors the message of Dr. King and the progress he continues to inspire.

To speak to current events impacting communities across our nation today, the organizing committee has invited Keith Beauchamp to give the keynote address at this year's MLK Unity Breakfast. Beauchamp is an Emmy-Nominated Producer/ Director, known for his documentary “The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till”, that is cited by the United States Department of Justice as a major factor in re-opening the 50 year-old murder case of Emmett Till. He has also collaborated with the FBI’s New Civil Rights “Cold Case” Initiative, producing documentaries on other unsolved civil rights murders in hopes of helping Federal agents with their investigations that could lead to bringing remaining perpetrators to justice. Keith Beauchamp has been featured on '60 Minutes', ABC World News Tonight 'Person of the Week,' Court TV, MSNBC, 'Good Morning America,' CNN, BBC as well as in hundreds of publications around the world. He is currently the Executive Producer and Host of Investigation Discovery’s crime reality series, ‘The Injustice Files’.
