MLK Celebration 2014
Join the University of Chicago in celebrating diversity and the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the annual MLK Celebration.

Cost: Free
Registration Required:

Join the University of Chicago and the greater Chicago community in a celebration of the live of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This year's event will feature a keynote address by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick.

Deval Patrick, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts since 2006, has charted a path from his childhood on the south side of Chicago to the US Justice Department, and now to the Massachusetts State House. A graduate both of Harvard College and of Harvard Law School, he served as law clerk to a federal appellate judge before joining the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund as a staff attorney, and was then called to serve in President Clinton’s administration as Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, the nation's top civil rights post. In each of these capacities, he has been guided by the advice of his grandmother: hope for the best and work for it.

This event is free and open to the public. A community reception will be held in Ida Noyes Hall immediately after the celebration.
