TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY’S ANNUAL KING HOLIDAY CELEBRATION

Each year, the MSC Carter G. Woodson Black Awareness Committee hosts its Annual Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast at Texas A&M. Different iterations of this annual program occur on campuses across the country. Typically, the MLK Breakfast serves as a formal way to reflect on the life, legacy, and accomplishments of Dr. King. At Texas A&M, our hope is to not only honor King, but to also make his legacy relevant for the university and its students, faculty, and administration. We hope to utilize the passion and spirit associated with King, the Civil Rights Movement, and other leaders of the past to inspire and foster a spirit of action in the leaders of today and tomorrow.

Previous speakers for this annual event have included: Dr. Michael Eric Dyson (2008), Dr. Julianne Malveaux (2009), Dr. Cornel West (2010), Dr. Angela Davis (2011), Harry Belafonte (2012), Danny Glover (2013), Dr. Mary Frances Berry (2014), Diane Nash (2015), Dick Gregory (2016), Ruby Bridges (2017) and Maya Wiley (2019). This year, we will have the honor of adding another distinguished guest to this list.
