If you were unable to attend the 2023 The Skanner Foundation's Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast, you can view the entire event from the comfort of your living room. Air dates fall on the first few days of Black History Month.

The Skanner Foundation’s 37th Annual MLK Breakfast on Jan. 16 was a mix of celebration and rumination on work left to be done to secure the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision.

Spirits were high as the sold-out event was held in-person at the Holiday Inn, Columbia River, for the first time since the start of the pandemic, with hundreds of elected officials and community leaders mingling and enjoying gospel performances by Trenelle Doyle and Dr. JerMichael Riley, alongside inspiring speeches and the presentation of The Skanner Foundation scholarships to 34 high school seniors and renewing college students.
