The Pearland MLKCC strives to assist in developing relationships and nurturing a community environment where we are judged by the content of our character, to ensure equality in all things, and equitable justice for all members of our diverse community.
Pearland MLK serves to commemorate and educate our local community on the philosophy of the “Beloved Community” embodied in the vision and work of Rev., Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., through our efforts of hosting activities and events which raise awareness of Dr. King’s “Dream”, in conjunction with supporting the pursuit of higher education by young people in our community.

Pearland MLKCC was established in 2017 by a group of Brazoria County, Texas civic leaders who noticed the rapid multicultural growth of the area and wanted to create an event to celebrate the unity and diversity of northern Brazoria of which Pearland is the largest city by population. The leaders also noticed a void in the acknowledgement of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, which is a national holiday, and decided that a parade and other complementary activities would enhance the community's current list of events.
