Event Overview

Come join us to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. by practicing what he preached and help connect the people of Harlem with the building of a Community Space and Garden on 134th Street. The 134th Street Block Association has been using an empty lot to gather for neighborhood events and gathers. The Mission Continues has been working hard with the 134th Street Block Association to make the lot a space that the neighborhood can be proud of and a center for activity for the community. On this Dr. Martin Luther King Day we are going to continue to make this dream a reality by continuing the plan to revitalize the lot into a Community Space and Garden with the construction of a performance stage, garden beds and a shaded pergola for the summer. Please join us in building our communities one brick ( or garden bed) at a time! Charlie Mike!
