Dr. King's Civil Rights Legacy 50 Years After his Death


Today marks 5o years since the tragic death of Martin Luther King Jr.  

The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park in Atlanta is observing the 50th Anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination with special programming during Remembrance Week, April 4 – 9, 2018, to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King.  


At UC Davis School of Law, we are holding a program to honor Dr. King's civil rights legacy. King Hall will host a panel discussion about higher education and the civil rights movement. Students from Sacramento Area Youth Speaks (SAYS) will give a spoken word introduction.  The panelists include Professor Angela Harris, Rahim Reed, UC Davis Associate Executive Vice Chancellor for Campus Community Relations, and Kim Waldon, King Hall Law Students Association President.
