Chapel Hill: Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Activities at UNC-Chapel Hill | Various UNC Venues | 1.18.15-1.23.15
UNC’s MLK Jr. Celebration is part of a campus-wide initiative to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his legacy, and his ideals. Carolina began its celebrations of Dr. King’s life and legacy in 1983, long before there was a federal holiday. UNC is the only university ever awarded the “Making of the King Holiday Award” by the former MLK Federal Holiday Commission.
