Loyola, Tulane, Xavier and University New Orleans students will get together to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy for the 30th year during the MLK Week for Peace.

On Wednesday, Jan. 20, a convocation was held at Tulane’s McAlister Auditorium to start off the week and Kwame Rose, a Baltimore activist, was the featured speaker.

Expressions of Unity and Step off for the Dream happens Friday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. in Xavier University’s university center ballroom. Step teams from each school will get together to perform and remember King through song, music and dance.

The day of service will begin at 8 a.m. in Loyola’s residential quad. Students will then leave to go into the community and serve others.
