31st anniversary Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration

Benjamin Jealous, national president of the NAACP, will speak at Johns Hopkins’ 31st anniversary Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration on Friday, Jan. 11, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Turner. The program will honor faculty, staff and students who earned the MLK Community Service Award, which recognizes outstanding commitment to volunteer community service and humanity in the spirit of the life that King lived. Unified Voices, a choir of Johns Hopkins employees and local community residents, will perform gospel and patriotic selections. Levi Watkins, associate dean of postdoctoral programs, founded the program in 1982 in honor of King, who pastored a church in Montgomery, Ala., where Watkins’ family worshipped. King also mentored Watkins as part of the church’s Crusaders youth group.
