MLK walk planned for Jan. 22

January 15, 2007


Kansas University will honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. with a luminaria walk Jan. 22 on Jayhawk Boulevard.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is today, but because the spring semester does not begin until Jan. 19, KU's events marking the holiday were moved to Jan. 22.

The walk will begin at 6:30 p.m. in front of Strong Hall. Participants will walk along Jayhawk Boulevard, reflecting on King's legacy. The evening will end in Woodruff Auditorium in the Kansas Union with a performance by the Inspirational Gospel Voices and featured speaker Walter M. Kimbrough, president of Philander Smith College in Little Rock, Ark.

Kimbrough, former vice president for student affairs at Albany State University in Albany, Ga., is the author of "Black Greek 101: The Culture, Customs and Challenges of Black Fraternities and Sororities."
