Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

January 18, 2021

Celebrating the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

Today JM Family Enterprises celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., an influential civil rights activist whose courage helped break down racial barriers impacting American society in a profound way. Through his powerful messages of hope and healing, Dr. King worked hard to build a society where equality would become a reality – and no longer a dream.

In lieu of rolling up our sleeves and volunteering together in honor of MLK Day of Service, due to the pandemic, JM Family is making a $25,000 contribution to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). The UNCF is an American philanthropic organization that funds scholarships for black students and general scholarship funds for 37 private historically black colleges and universities.

In addition, JM Family served as the presenting sponsor of the 17th annual MLK Inspirational Breakfast hosted by the YMCA of South Florida on Friday, January 15, 2021. During the virtual event, Colin Brown, chairman of JM Family, introduced Rev. James Lawson, a legendary American civil rights activist, mentor and university professor who taught the principles and strategies of nonviolent civil resistance.
