Martin Luther King Jr. Concert- Sunday, January 23rd

| No Comments

The 2011 MLK Celebration will take place on Sunday, January 23, from 4-6 p.m. at the Ted Mann Concert Hall.

When the University of Minnesota's Martin Luther King Day concert began in 1980, it was the only tribute of its kind in Minnesota. The late Reginald Buckner, a professor in the School of Music--and an accomplished performer, composer, and educator--founded the concert and began a tradition of celebrating the life and accomplishments of Dr. King through performing arts.

Professor Buckner's death in 1989 left the University with an inspiring legacy--the annual celebration that marks its 30th anniversary in 2011. The Martin Luther King celebration is now a joint program of the University of Minnesota's Office for Equity and Diversity and the School of Music.
