The Lumberjack community will come together to honor the life and civil rights work of Martin Luther King Jr. during Northern Arizona University’s annual MLK Day Celebration Program on Monday.
The celebration, which takes place on NAU’s campus and throughout the Flagstaff community, is sponsored by the Black Student Union. The annual march will begin at 1 p.m. at the DuBois Center on south campus, ending at Union Point. Members of student groups and student-athletes will do service projects throughout the community, including at Hope Cottage and The Peaks Senior Living Community.
From 2-4 p.m. there will be historical displays of historically African-American fraternities and sororities and an MLK Day museum display at the Office of Inclusion.
The university will be closed Monday, Jan. 15, in observance of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. NAU permits are not required for parking on campus that day. Parking restrictions for reserved stalls and meters remain in effect.
