The Catholic Telegraph of Cincinnati reports on the planned activities of two local Catholic universities, Xavier University and the University of Dayton, for Martin Luther King Day. In the case of XU, it’s more like Martin Luther King Week; they have at least one event per day from Jan. 21 – Jan. 25, the last of which is called “Ivy Prince Boyz II Men: Evolution of a Gentleman.” And XU and UD themselves promote these activities on their respective websites here and here. Curiously, the schools forgot to include their activities for the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, which falls on Jan. 22 — smack-dab in the middle of all the MLK festivities. ‘Must be an oversight.
Xavier University plans a week of events to celebrate the birthday of civil rights leader the Rev. Martin Luther King. Events are free and open to the public, except where noted. Co-sponsored by Xavier’s Office of Multicultural Affairs, Office of Student Involvement, Center for Interfaith Community Engagement, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Career Services Center and Black Student Association.
