As a part of the Manhattan community’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration, original works of art or writing incorporating the theme “Live Together as Brothers and Sisters” are now being accepted for the MLK Art and Writing Contest. Tell us or show us your experience with Dr. King’s message of non-violence, social justice, and human rights, and help us pass on his message of peace.
“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
