UND events honor and memorialize Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Posted on 1/10/2012

The University of North Dakota Black Student Association in partnership with Era Bell Thompson Multicultural Student Services will host two events associated with Martin Luther King Day.

On Thursday, Jan.12, "Celebrate Dr. King!" will be held from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on the main floor of the Memorial Union. Participants can watch video clips highlighting King's accomplishments. They can also add comments and descriptive phrases to the "Wall of Love and Hate," and receive a personal copy of the Birmingham Pledge. The event is open to the public and cake will be served.

Although UND will be closed for Martin Luther King Day next Monday, Jan. 16, the life and accomplishments of King will be commemorated that day with a candlelight vigil and program. Those who wish to participate will gather at 11:45 a.m. at the Era Bell Thompson Multicultural Center.

Following a walk in solidarity from the Multicultural Center to the Christus Rex Lutheran Campus Center, the program will take place. Soup and beverages will be provided. The event is open to the public.
