The Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Service at Stanford University, in partnership with the NorcalMLK Foundation, is a revered annual event that honors Dr. King's legacy.
At the heart of this service is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Address, a profound and thought-provoking speech delivered by a distinguished guest speaker. The address serves as a platform for addressing contemporary social justice issues, reflecting on Dr. King's teachings, and inspiring positive change.
The celebration service is a gathering of the Stanford University community and the wider public to commemorate Dr. King's contributions to civil rights and social progress. It features a program that includes music, spoken word performances, and reflections on Dr. King's life and work. This event fosters dialogue, unity, and a renewed commitment to advancing the principles of equality and justice that Dr. King championed throughout his life. It's a moment to reflect on the ongoing struggle for civil rights and to celebrate the progress made while acknowledging the work that remains ahead.
The address is a partnership between the NorcalMLK Foundation, Stanford University's Office of Religious & Spiritual Life, the Center for Islamic Studies at the Graduate Theological Union, and the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples in San Francisco.
