Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast

35th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast

For nearly 100 years, the Crispus Attucks Community Center (CACC) has stood in Lancaster as a pillar of African American history and legacy. 

The Center is named for Crispus Attucks, a Black man who was the first American killed in the Revolutionary War, of whom the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said, “He is one of the most important figures in African American history, not for what he did for his own race but for what he did for all oppressed people everywhere. He is a reminder that the African American heritage is not only African but American and it is a heritage that begins with the beginning of America.” 

Part of the Center’s continued commitment to amplifying the Black voice is through its annual hosting of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Breakfast. This event, the Center’s largest fundraiser, annually raises $100,000 in critical funds for the Center, nearly 1/3 of the its yearly budget.
