   UT, City of Toledo to invite community to MLK Unity Celebration

The Toledo community will gather together at The University of Toledo on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. King 50 years after his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.

The 13th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Celebration will take place at 9 a.m. Monday, Jan. 20 in Savage Arena.

UT President Lloyd Jacobs and Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins will hold a news conference at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 10 in the Schmakel Room of the Driscoll Alumni Center on the UT Main Campus to extend an invitation to the greater Toledo community to attend the Unity Celebration.

The theme of the 2014 event is “Defending the Dream” in recognition of the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream Speech.”

The celebration will feature remarks by Toledo NAACP President Ray Wood, in addition to President Jacobs and Mayor Collins, as well as performances by the Toledo Interfaith Mass Choir and recognition of the 2012 MLK Scholarship recipients. A free community luncheon will follow the ceremony.
