MLK Tournament Finals

Why Do We Celebrate Martin Luther King Day?

“The national holiday honoring Dr. King is an occasion for joy and celebration for his life and his work toward nonviolent social change in America and the world. Traditionally, we celebrate holidays with parties, family picnics, fireworks, a trip back home or to the seashore. However, we must also be mindful that this is a special holiday – one which symbolizes our nation’s commitment to peace through justice; to universal brother- and sisterhood; and to the noblest ideal of all: a democratic society based on the principles of freedom, justice and equality for all people. Whether you celebrate Dr. King’s birthday on January 15th or during Black History Month, the holiday is an occasion for thanksgiving, unselfishness, and rededicating ourselves to the causes for which he stood and for which he died.”

To commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King’s day, the Urban Youth Academy hosted our annual MLK Tournament to support the spirit of collaboration, friendship and harmony that this Holiday promotes.
