The Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Dinner Celebration is a community-wide tradition celebrated at Syracuse University for more than a quarter of a century and is one of the nation’s largest celebrations of Dr. King’s legacy. At Syracuse University, we consider the intrepid spirit of Dr. King to be more than a legacy. It is the essence of our vision to create positive social change by bringing together the resources of the academic community with the knowledge, wisdom, and experience of our neighbors.
It is this commitment to bring together University and community members to create a better, more just world, that motivated us to expand our choir to include a broad sector of Syracuse’s vibrant and dynamic community. We hope you will join us for this important and exciting event.
