Join us to honor the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at Syracuse University’s 36th annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. The event, which is the largest of its kind on a college campus, will take place online on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021 at 7 p.m. ET.

The event includes student and community performances, as well as presentation of the Unsung Hero Awards, which recognize local community members who have championed the plight of those in need.

Ruby Bridges, one of the first African American students to attend an all-white elementary school in the South, will serve as the keynote speaker. Bridges will reflect on Dr. King’s work, as well as the impact of education in sparking and sustaining social change.

All are invited to join us for a special virtual event series leading up to the 2021 MLK Celebration! This series will commemorate the cultural, social and artistic impact of the civil rights movement.

Registration is free and open to all. Zoom links will be sent in your confirmation email. Register today!
