“Kroger has been a national leader in inclusion and equity efforts and we’re humbled by their longstanding support of our King Legacy Celebration,” said Woodrow Keown, Jr., president and COO of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. “Kroger’s commitment is instrumental in the community's commemoration of Dr. King’s legacy, and inspiring a collective call to action to pursue solutions to systemic inequities in our community and across the country.”
Brittany Packnett Cunningham, social justice activist, educator and writer, will headline the program. Cunningham will focus on this year’s theme – love and justice – to examine the intersection of culture and social justice and how everyday people can take transformative action for justice and equity.
