UMaine, NAACP to Honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day with Events

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.

All events are free and open to the public.
