Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration featuring Dawn Porter

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 6:00pm to 7:45pm

State Theatre 121 E Martin Luther King Jr St, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

The annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration at Cornell aspires to be a cross-campus and community partnership that makes accessible the life and legacy of  Dr. King for contemporary times.  The King commemoration seeks to bring together Cornellians, Ithaca College and Ithaca community colleagues to plan and participate in this event.  The Commemoration seeks to bridge the gap between memory and history: the memory of an earlier generation that participated in or lived during the black freedom struggle of the 1950s and 1960s; and the history of a faraway time for persons born after this period.
