Martin Luther King's Legacy: Justice, Peace and Service

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dear Members of the Penn Community,

Each year, during the month of January, the University and our surrounding communities come together to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The commemoration reminds us of our interdependence and reaffirms our commitment to the betterment of our communities through civility and service.

Beginning January 15 through January 31, 2003, Penn is proud to sponsor the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Symposium on Social Change to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This year's theme is Penn's Commitment to the Legacy: Justice, Peace & Service. The 2003 Commemorative Symposium is a wonderful opportunity for the University and the community to support dynamic programming that empowers individuals to help end the practice of racism, strengthen and appreciate diversity, serve the campus and surrounding area, embrace cultural arts, nurture a quest for knowledge, support free expression and embrace an interfaith community.

The University will acknowledge Monday, January 20, 2003 as "a day on and not a day off" by offering several volunteer projects in which to participate. Please encourage your family, friends, co-workers and fellow students to support King's legacy by volunteering on that day.

Complete details about the 2003 Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Symposium on Social Change will be announced in a few weeks. For more information, contact the African-American Resource Center at (215) 898-0104 or

-- Machamma Quinichett, Executive Chair, 2003 MLK Planning Committee
