50th Anniversary: Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Given the significance of the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination approaching April 4, 2018, there is no doubt that Memphis will be in the national spotlight that particular week. In remembrance of Dr. King's national and global impact, many organizations throughout the city are planning community programs and events. As a part of this effort, the University of Memphis will also host several programs. These MLK50 commemoration events will provide a tremendous opportunity for the UofM to partner strategically, provide a venue for meaningful community dialogue and bring significant visibility to our University.
