Martin Luther King Commemoration
The Chicago campus has a DREAM (Day to Recognize the Efforts and Achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) Committee developed through a partnership between NU Law and Feinberg School of Medicine. Students, staff and faculty from both programs work together to plan events commemorating the King holiday. Activities include service, a youth art contest, a week-long lecture series, and a keynote presentation on the actual holiday. All events are free and open to the public.
The 2013 Lecture series will be January 14-18 and the keynote will be Monday, January 21, 12:00 - 2:00 pm in Thorne Auditorium (375 E. Chicago Ave). A reception precedes the keynote event.
The DREAM Committee will accept Youth Art Contest entries until December 21, 2012.
The 2012 Keynote took place Monday, January 16, and featured a conversation with Dr. Benjamin Carson moderated by Mary Mitchell, G3 Gospel Choir, and Martin Woods.
