The Lafayette Youth Advisory Committee is presenting the "10th Annual MLK Celebration;
A Decade of Celebration and Service" on January 19.
On this day, community members will pay tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. during the tenth annual March for Peace and Celebration.

The march will conclude at the LaMont Does Park located at 500 E. South Boulder Road, where a celebration will be underway.
Free and open to the public, the afternoon celebration will include a welcome by local elected officials; slam poetry; monologues from Motus Theater’s Do You Know Who I Am?; and performances by CU Mile 21; the Second Baptist Church’s Shekenah Glory Choir; and the Kutandara Center’s Shamwari and Tamba Teen Bands. In the Buff, a CU Boulder A Capella group will also perform prior to the march.
