King County calling for photos, artwork or essays on Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thursday, December 13, 2018

He is America’s foremost human rights leader, a man whose image King County is proud to have as its logo.

As King County prepares for its annual celebration of the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., county officials are inviting the public to become part of the event by putting into words or pictures the ideas and ideals for America and the world that King gave his life for.

The county is looking for the public’s interpretation, in either a photo, a work of art, or an essay, of the theme for the 2019 celebration:

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.”------Martin Luther King, Jr. 

“I encourage all who are interested, especially young people, to submit their creative reflections on Dr. King’s principles and teachings and what they mean for Martin Luther King County in 2019,” said County Executive Dow Constantine. “Whether through music, poetry, painting or creative writing, this is a great opportunity to honor and celebrate Dr. King’s enduring legacy.”

“This is an opportunity for the public to be part of our annual celebration and honor our County’s namesake vision of just, equitable communities,” said King County Council Chair Joe McDermott.

Please submit your work via email at, or send them to:

King County Office of Equity and Social Justice
401 5th Ave. Suite 800
Seattle, WA 98104

Submissions must be received by Monday, December 31, 2018

A selection of the submissions will be on display at locations throughout King County and available for viewing and reading by the public at the annual King County Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Celebration on January 10, 2019. A selection of the submissions will also be available on the celebration website.
