36th Annual MLK Day
Spartanburg will celebrate the 36th annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Week through January 16, 2023. Going back to the first gathering around the flagpole at City Hall 36 years ago, Spartanburg’s residents have long recognized that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s mission lives on in the people of our community and their commitment to a more just and equitable world. Today, the importance of that mission is as evident as it has ever been. Below are some of the many ways that members of the community can get involved in the Unity Week Celebration!
