MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Thousands of people will gather next Monday at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the It’s the annual Martin Luther King Day Breakfast.

The breakfast, sponsored by General Mills and the United Negro College Fund, will feature the speaker Naomi Tutu, a human rights activist from South Africa and the daughter of Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu.

Kofi Bruce, of the Martin Luther King Breakfast committee, said Tutu will speak about peace and unity in the global community.

“I think what she is going to do is take Dr. King’s legacy and put it in an international context,” Bruce said.

The Martin Luther King Day Breakfast starts at 7 a.m. Jan. 16. The event kicks off with breakfast and music from the gospel group the Steeles. Tickets cost $30, and it always sells out.
