Dr. Martin Luther King Celebration

On Friday, January 21, 2022, the Charles E. Brown African American Cultural Center at Indiana State University will host the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Commemoration Dinner in the Sycamore Banquet Center, Hulman Memorial Student Union. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m. followed by dinner and program at 7 p.m.

This annual Indiana State University event is to honor the life and contributions of America’s greatest champion of racial harmony, social justice, and equality, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King was a leader who not only dreamed of a just society but also led a movement that achieved historic reforms to help make it a reality.

Each year, a keynote speaker is chosen due to their direct participation with the Civil Rights Movement or through their life works, which exemplifies the values of racial harmony, social justice, peace, and equality. This year our speaker is Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, Steve Charles Professor of Media, Cities, and Solutions at Temple University. He holds a Ph.D. (with distinction) from the University of Pennsylvania.

We cordially invite you, your company, church, or organization to join us for a great evening of fellowship and thought-provoking commentary. Tables of eight are available at $280. Individual seats may be reserved at $35.00. Reservations may be made by completing the attached form.
