After breaking for two years for the COVID-19 pandemic, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Power Leadership Breakfast is returning to Collin College‘s Living Legends Conference Center.

This year’s breakfast theme is “Recharge, Reset, Renew Dr. King’s Way,” and will include presentations and student performances of Dr. King’s message, a panel of community leaders discussing how to move that message forward and of course the breakfast.

For the past two years, the breakfast has been held virtually, so the organizers are expecting a large turnout and guests should arrive as early as possible, according to a press release.

“We are so blessed to be able to come together in the spirit of renewal at this year’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Power Leadership Breakfast,” said Dr. Millie Black, event co-chair. “After two years of virtual celebrations, this will be a chance to reenergize our community’s efforts to create a more loving, just, and equitable world while inspiring the leaders of tomorrow. We look forward to a chance to fellowship and renew Dr. King’s message.”

The celebration will be held on Saturday at 8 a.m. and is free to the public. For those unable to attend, Collin College will stream the event live at

A business and information expo will take place immediately following in the Plano Campus atrium, also open to the public. Local vendors and nonprofit organizers will be available to visit with guests.

There will also be an MLK Community Event on Sunday, January 15 at 6 p.m. in the Williams High School Auditorium.
