On Tuesday, Jan. 22, DePaul will host its 22nd annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Prayer Breakfast​. The annual event is part of the President's Signature Series and brings together members of the entire university community to celebrate the life and living legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. as an activist for social justice within the African-American community. All members of DePaul community are welcome to attend.

This year a panel of DePaul faculty, including Michael Bennett, Valerie Johnson and Julie Lawton, will discuss their past, current and future perspectives on civil rights. From musical performances by DePaul community members to a presentation made by students from The Theatre School, this year's event will produce a number of works honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.​

“This year’s program will spotlight African American faculty, staff and students," says Liz Ortiz, vice president of the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity. "The program is a celebration of MLK’s life and legacy and also highlights the perspectives, talents and contributions of our DePaul family.”
