"Why We Can't Wait: A Tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr."

Today there was standing-room only attendance at the campus celebration in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday. The program was organized by the African American Cultural and Research Center and Ethnic Programs and Services.

The program involved presentations, music, and an inspiring keynote address from UC's 27th - and first African-American - president Dr. Gregory H. Williams. It's ended with the traditional call to service by Dr. Eric Abercrumbie - with the reminder that Monday's upcoming holiday is a day ON, not a day off.

The AACRC Choir performed.
