The Office of Diversity and Community will host their annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Prayer Breakfast at 9 a.m. on Friday, January 17, 2014 on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas in the Student Center Ballroom.
The speaker is Victor Green, 2013 chair of the UCA Board of Trustees and claims manager of Pilot Catastrophe Services.
This year’s theme is “Dr. King Had a Dream…What’s Yours?” The purpose of the breakfast is to celebrate the spiritual legacy, the moral courage and fortitude that King showcased during his life and work in social justice and civil rights.
“We commemorate, as well, the timeless values he taught us through his examples. The values of service, truth, dignity, humility and compassion so radiantly defined King’s character and empowered his leadership,” said Angela Jackson, director of the Office of Diversity and Community.
The Office of Diversity and Community provides multiple support services for current minority students and programming initiatives for underrepresented students that educate, challenge and foster a sense of inclusion for the members of the UCA community.
Breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m., and the event is free and open to the public.
