Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The commemoration of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has a rich history at the University of South Carolina. Even before the inception of the national holiday, commemorative activities were held at USC.

In January 1983, the USC Black Alumni Caucus sponsored the first University program in honor of Dr. King’s birthday and continued to sponsor the event, held in Rutledge Chapel, until 1986. The event has evolved into a week-long series of activities which include a commemorative breakfast, a day of service, and a gospel music concert. Organized by the Office of Equal Opportunity Programs working collaboratively with a planning committee which is comprised of persons from various other departments and areas within the University, the event has become a major University tradition.
