The University of Maine in collaboration with the Greater Bangor Area NAACP will celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. with events including a march, lunch and panel discussion from 12:30 to 5 p.m. Jan. 20.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Day events will kick off at 12:30 p.m. with a march starting at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King Memorial Plaza that will be led by the Black Student Union, a University of Maine student organization.

Lunch will be served at 1 p.m. in the Bangor Room of the Memorial Union and music will be provided by the singing group Voices for Peace. After lunch and opening remarks, a panel will discuss “What Would King do? Lessons for Today” followed by a question-and-answer period and small group discussions on the ways King inspires hope for change individually and throughout the world.
