2018 MLK Jr. Unity Breakfast: standUP speakOUT
Social Event, Community Event

The 12th Annual MLK Unity Breakfast will be held on January 15, 2018 to recognize and celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King and his historic civic leadership that inspired a nation to strive for equality. This gathering honors the message of Dr. King and the progress he continues to inspire. The planning committee has invited Rosalyn M. Brock, Chairman Emeritus of the National Board of Directors for the NAACP to address this year's theme: Standup/Speakout: Reflections on Service & Sacrifice. The Unity Breakfast was established by the Black Student Union to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King, and inspire members of the campus community to continue to work to make his vision of an equitable society a reality. The program recognizes students, faculty, and community members for outstanding service to the community through the Dream Awards which are presented during the program. This year's Unity Breakfast is cosponsored by the Division of Student and Enrollment Services and the Black Student Union.
