MLK Celebration 2014

Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Multicultural programs office has collaborated with some local community organizations to develop three events of services for honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King was both a Baptist minister and civil-rights activist who adhered to Gandhi's philosophy of nonviolence. In respect to his work and service, we would like to give the city of Sioux Falls the opportunity to celebrate and serve in his honor.
