Power 105.1 celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and salutes the real-life heroes making a difference in our communities today. Listen all week to hear your favorite artists telling their stories, sharing their hopes and talking about doing what matters in honor of MLK’s legacy.

We commemorate Dr. King’s inspiring words, because his voice and his vision filled a great void in our nation, and answered our collective longing to become a country that truly lived by its noblest principles. Yet, Dr. King knew that it wasn’t enough just to talk the talk, that he had to walk the walk for his words to be credible. And so we commemorate on this holiday the man of action, who put his life on the line for freedom and justice every day, the man who braved threats and jail and beatings and who ultimately paid the highest price to make democracy a reality for all Americans.
