The branch consistently tries to recognize and celebrate people and organizations in Chapel Hill-Carrboro whose work exemplifies the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and nominations are now open for our branch's annual Martin Luther King, Jr., Award.


This award will recognize an individual that envisions solutions to the many inequities in this world that we live in but also has the courage to act and to persevere in the face of challenging circumstances.
