The Skanner Foundation's 22nd annual Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast brought together 1000 people, to celebrate the life and legacy of the civil rights hero. This year the theme of the breakfast was "In Green Pastures: An Environment Where King's Dream Will Grow. Keynote speaker at the event was Steven Coleman, executive director of Washington Parks and People and a longtime activist for green spaces in urban neighborhoods. Coleman talked about his work with a coalition that revitalized Malcolm X park in Washington DC and helped turn one of Washington's most dangerous parks, from an illegal drug market into Marvin Gaye Park, a neighborhood park with open air performance space.
