Emory honors the spirit of activism and social justice of Atlanta's native son, the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., with a week of service and seminars, a natural extension of the university's commitment to diversity and inclusion.
Monday's holiday is a "day on" as volunteers participate in service projects. On Jan. 20, the Department of African American Studies hosts the annual King Week Lecture, "Constitutional People: The Algebra Project and The Mississippi Theater (1960-1965) of The Civil Rights Movement," by civil rights legend Bob Moses. | See full schedule of events.
