Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Unity Week Celebration

Unity Week

Going back to the first gathering around the flagpole at City Hall over three decades ago, Spartanburg's people have long recognized that Dr. King's mission lives on in the people of our community and their commitment to a more just and equitable world. Today, the importance of that mission is as evident as it has ever been. Our collective work fostering, promoting, and sustaining equity in Spartanburg is ongoing, drawing inspiration from our forebearers and pushing toward the future they envisioned.
