MLK "Sunday" Supper
Thursday, January 18, 2018 (6:00-8:00pm)
As we honor Dr. King's life and legacy, it is important to take time to celebrate and reflect together as a community. The MLK "Sunday" Supper invites the Georgia Tech community to come together over a meal and engage in meaningful dialogue about the 2018 MLK Celebration events and specifically around this year's theme, "Actualizing the Dream: The Future of Nonviolent Political Protest."
