University/Community Annual MLK Banquet (Virtual)

MLK Celebration

UNC’s MLK Celebration Week begins with the 36th annual University/Community Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Banquet and Award Presentation, hosted by the MLK Jr. Corporation, in partnership with UNC’s Office for Diversity & Inclusion. The MLK University/Community Planning Corporation, a non-profit group founded in 1993, raises scholarship funds for high school students in Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Orange County and UNC students who work to improve the quality of life for everyone in the community. Each year, the Corporation also honors citizens in “recognition of enduring service to humanity by word and by deed” through the Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Citizenship Awards.

This year’s speaker will be North Carolina Superior Court Judge Carl Fox. In 2005, the Honorable Judge Fox became the first black judge in his Orange-Chatham County district.

Tickets, which support the student scholarships, are $20.
