Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Lecture

"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity." 
                                                             - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is not just about the understanding the man behind the “I Have a Dream” speech, but continuing the vision that he left for the world – to fight against human injustices. It is for this reason that, the office of multicultural affairs sponsors/co-sponsors a keynote address to commemorate Kings legacy every year in the month of January.
