Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Commemoration

January 21, 2019 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

The Other America is the theme of the 2019 Nazareth celebration of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The College’s annual commemoration takes place on Monday, January 21, 2019, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Arts Center’s Callahan Theater. Classes are suspended for all students and staff offices are closed so all have the ability to attend.

This theme, The Other America, is from the title of a speech delivered by King on April 14, 1967 at Stanford University. In this speech, Dr. King addresses race, poverty and economic justice. His words continue to be relevant in our world today.

The keynote address with Dr. Laurence Thomas, professor of Philosophy at Syracuse University and author of Vessels of Evil, American Slavery and the Holocaust is not happening due to the weather forecast, and his evening lecture is cancelled.

The commemoration will feature the performances of the student recipients of the 2019 MLK Visual and Performing Arts Awards: Visual Arts: Norah Al-Qahtani, Theatre/Dance: Ayana Seay-Ross, and Music: Jah-Luv Guy.
