Each year Georgia State University honors The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and work with numerous activities in January. Campus events feature lectures, discussions, celebration, and community service opportunities that reflect his dream and vision for civil rights and social justice.
Monday, January 15, 2024, marks the 38th anniversary of the first observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a U.S. federal holiday.
The Belonging@GSU web team in partnership with Cultures, Communities & Inclusion, the Multicultural Center, the Office of Civic Engagement, the Office of Black Student Achievement and academic units of Georgia State have established this page to provide a more central location for events across the university's different colleges, schools, departments and other units, along with highlighted external events in the communities Georgia State's campuses call home.
