The vigil will begin at 4:30 p.m. at Veterans Hall, Ellison Campus Center. The march will conclude in the lobby of the Frederick E. Berry Library and Learning Commons Lobby.

The MLK candlelight vigil is an opportunity for the community to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s commitment to social activism, and the legacy that has inspired us to continue his movement.

The ceremony will include presentations by current students, song and readings, and a silent march to the Frederick E. Berry Library and Learning Commons. Refreshments will be served at the ground floor lobby immediately following the march.
