HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University will close Jan. 20 in recognition of the Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday, but will celebrate the legacy of the late Civil Rights leader with a remembrance program on Wednesday, Jan. 22.
Open to the public, the event, "It all started with a dream...A dream unforgotten," is sponsored annually by the Kappa Nu Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity and the Office of Multicultural and International Student Affairs.
The event begins with a unity march at 5:46 p.m. starting from the overflow parking lot across from St.Tammany Hall to the Katrina-Rita Fountain. The actual program honoring the life of King will start at 6:06 p.m. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held in Fayard Hall, room 106.
