During the 1999 New York State King Holiday Memorial Observance, the Empire State King Quilts were unveiled for all to enjoy. The six King Quilts were created as a special tribute to the life and legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The concept for the quilt came about with these thoughts in mind: that a community is a blend of ideas of men, women and children from diverse backgrounds woven together like threads in a colorful tapestry.

Come view the quilts during the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Observance on Monday, January 16, 2017. They will be displayed on the walls of the Empire State Plaza Convention Center during the event.
