UT Austin celebrates Martin Luther King Day

Posted on January 16th, 2012 No Comments

Today, The University of Texas at Austin is celebrating Martin Luther King Day with their 18th annual march from the UT campus to Huston-Tillotson University’s campus.  The celebration began at 9 a.m. at the Martin Luther King Jr. statue located in UT Austin’s East Mall.

Vice President for Diversity and Community Engagement at UT Gregory J. Vincent said of the event, “The march is a reminder of the tremendous efforts and personal sacrifices of those in the civil rights movement, and we hope it encourages participants to work for equity and social justice now.”

After hearing performances and speakers, Chair of the African and African Diaspora Studies Department Edmund T. Gordon led the march to the Capitol to hear the Greater Mount Zion Church Choir.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the celebration continues at a festival on the Huston-Tillotson campus.  The festival includes musical performances by the Nelson Saga Band, Funk Mob, Les, and more.  The Austin Area Heritage Council organized the events.

The Austin janitorial professionals of WOW Total Cleaning hope Austin area residents enjoy Martin Luther King Jr. Day and participate in the celebrations the city has to offer.
