Celebrate the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The life and achievements of Martin Luther King Jr. will be celebrated in a series of events on campus beginning Jan. 21. King is most well-known for his campaigns to end racial segregation on public transport and for racial equality in the United States.

The MLK Day of Greatness begins at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 21 in the Student Union Jordan Ballroom with poster making. Free materials and a limited number of commemorative Boise State MLK Celebration T-shirts will be available.

From there, the march to the steps of the Capitol begins between 10:30 and 10:45 a.m. Marchers will progress from campus to the Capitol Steps for a rally. At the conclusion of the rally at noon, attendees will be invited inside the Capitol Rotunda to join the community in the State of Idaho’s recognition of Human Rights Day.
