Every year the Dr. Martin Luther King Breakfast held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel focuses for one day the remarkable achievement of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who by emulating the Gandhi practice of non-violent, economic-based protest, virtually singlehandedly galvanized America’s leaders to end discriminatory laws against the Negro throughout the country.
