Ferris State University's 2010 Martin Luther King Celebration Activities Announced

BIG RAPIDS - Take a look at the schedule for the 2010 Martin Luther King Celebration (Jan. 18-21) on the Ferris State University campus.

The Office of Multicultural Student Services and the MLK Planning Committee have worked to put together what they believe will be an outstanding series of activities that bring into focus the works of Dr. King and how his message remains important today.

The MLK Planning Committee has a theme this year "The Jim Crow Era: Then & Now" for the activities.
