Happy three-day MLK Weekend, y'all. How's everyone going to celebrate Dr. King's legacy? Like Christmas, the true spirt of the holiday is often overlooked. People forget that the good Doctor dedicated his life to civil rights and died in the name of equality.

We've compiled a list of some of the best happenings 'round the Big Mango this weekend, peppered it with some artsy stuff, and topped it all off with an MLK-centric section. Get ready for a fun-filled weekend, friends.




Monday, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

  • Unity in the Community: The City of Miami Gardens has several events planned for the holiday and asks, "What steps will you take to make your community more unified?"
  • Martin Luther King Day Parade: Liberty City's annual MLK parade kicks off at 11 a.m.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
