Elberton’s Annual Unity Celebration, for the Birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., takes place each year during the week preceding the legal holiday. However, the celebration itself culminates on his birthday, third Monday in January, where middle and high school students participate in an Academic Bowl and Oratorical Contest. The Martin Luther King Committee (Elbert County Planning Committee, Inc.) offers five (5) days of cultural and educational activities for the community.
Through prayer and diligence, our mission is to involve and enlighten the entire community and Northeast Georgia referencing the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We can accomplish this goal through educational and cultural activities offered during the Martin Luther King Unity Weekend. These events will teach tolerance, cooperation, contributions made by Dr. King, and enhance race relations to the point of economic, educational, environmental, political and social equity.
