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.

The 14th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Unity Celebration will take place at 9 a.m. Monday, Jan. 19 in Savage Arena.

UT Interim President Nagi Naganathan and Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. Monday, Jan. 12 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 2015 event quote’s Dr. King, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” in celebration of how the holiday has become a day of service in his honor.

The celebration will feature remarks by President Naganathan and Mayor Collins, as well as musical performances by the Toledo School for the Arts’ Afro-Caribbean Dance and Drum Ensemble, essay readings from local students and recognition of the 2014 MLK Scholarship recipients. A free community luncheon will follow the ceremony.
