The Coral Springs Martin Luther King Jr. Committee is now accepting nominations for the 2023 MLK Monument Award.
The award recognizes nominees for embodying one or more of the qualities illustrated in the quotes on the MLK Monument.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial at the Northwest Regional Library, created by Dari Artist, expresses feelings on civil rights through sculpture and painting.
The Lac Du Bonnet Pillar (coral-colored granite) stands for equality, freedom of speech, unity, and democracy. The base is made of Mesabi Black Granite, also featured in other projects, including the Wall of Remembrance at Eagle Circle.
The Raven Black monument represents the Rainbow Coalition and Dr. King’s dignity, teachings, and strength. This piece honors the memory of Dr. King and those who have been brave enough to stand on behalf of the people to demand their rights.
Bishop Rick Thomas, who has been actively supporting the Coral Springs MLK Committee’s programs since its inception, was last year’s nominee.
Nominees can be an individual or organization in Coral Springs that embodies the ideals of Dr. King. The deadline to submit your application is January 20, 2023. Nominees must be 18 and older.
