“Loyola is spearheading the celebration this year, but it is really a combined effort of Loyola, Dillard, Tulane and Xavier universities,” says Robert Reed, assistant vice president for student affairs at Loyola and chair of the 2014 MLK committee. “The event series is a way for college students and the New Orleans community to keep King’s dream alive more than 50 years after he made that famous speech.”The week’s events include:
• A step team competition on Friday (Jan. 17) at 7 p.m. at McAlister Auditorium on the Tulane campus.
• The MLK convocation and symposium on Saturday (Jan. 18) at 10 a.m. in Loyola’s Danna Student Center St. Charles Room.
• An interfaith service to commemorate King’s legacy on Sunday (Jan. 19) at 6 p.m. at Dillard’s Lawless Chapel.
• A day of service on Monday (Jan. 20) at selected sites around New Orleans. Registration is required.
