UF MLK Celebration is a campus-wide celebration honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his commitment to social justice through educational programs and service initiatives that are designed to empower you to use your strengths, passions, and talents to better the lives of others and impact your community.
January 12-31, 2017
“[The Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday] is a day of interracial and intercultural cooperation and sharing. No other day of the year brings so many peoples from different cultural backgrounds together in such a vibrant spirit of brother and sisterhood. Whether you are African-American, Hispanic or Native American, whether you are Caucasian or Asian-American, you are part of the great dream Martin Luther King, Jr. had for America. This is not a black holiday; it is a peoples’ holiday. And it is the young people of all races and religions who hold the keys to the fulfillment of his dream.”
-Coretta Scott King
All MLK Celebration Events are open to UF students, faculty, staff and the Gainesville community.
