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

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Unity Celebration will give the Toledo community the opportunity to celebrate the activist’s memory and vision on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at The University of Toledo.

UT President Lloyd Jacobs and Toledo Mayor Michael P. Bell will hold a press conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 11 in the board room of the Driscoll Alumni Center on the UT Main Campus to discuss the Unity Celebration and extend an invitation to the greater Toledo community to attend.

The 11th annual Unity Celebration will take place at 9 a.m. Monday, Jan. 16 in Savage Arena.

The 2012 celebration “Stand!” will feature a keynote address from Hari Jones, curator of the African-American Civil War Museum, as well as performances from the Toledo Interfaith Mass Choir and recognition of the 2011 MLK Scholarship recipients. A free community luncheon will follow the ceremony.

All attendees of Unity Celebration are asked to bring a canned good that will be donated to the MLK Kitchen for the Poor, 650 Vance St. in downtown Toledo.
