This year marks the 27th official Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and more than a day off from work, it has become a call to public service, and an opportunity to examine our progress toward the shared dream Dr. King so famously enunciated. UVA is partnering on Community MLK Celebration events throughout the month, including a day of service on January 21 to facilitate the spirit of the holiday, with panel discussions, film screenings, performances, forums, and lectures, plus an evening honoring Julian Bond and his historic contributions to the Civil Rights movement.

Through 2/8 Free, dates and times vary. Info at www.virginia.edu/mlk/events.

    Hopefully, you will celebrate MLK’s membership in the CPA, as well as his many extra-marital affairs with White Women. Those are parts of his ‘legacy’ that are often ‘forgotten’.
