Each year, Case Western Reserve University honors Martin Luther King, Jr.—the holiday, the man and the legacy—with a weeklong celebration that includes a range of activities including workshops, films, panel discussions and acclaimed speakers.
Bryan Stevenson, founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative, headlines this year's MLK convocation being held on Friday, January 22, 2016 in the Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Ballroom at the Tinkham Veale University Center on the campus of Case Western Reserve University. The facility is located at 11038 Bellflower Rd, Cleveland, OH 44106.
All members of the university and Northeast Ohio communities are invited to observe King's holiday and recognize his commitment to social justice and global peace. The event is free and open to the public, although registration is requested. Online registration will be activated soon.
