The annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Celebration highlights and memorializes the work, accomplishments, and legacy of one of the greatest Civil Rights and African American leaders in modern history. The Celebration, organized by a student led committee, conceptualizes and executes a series of events to educate the LSU and greater Baton Rouge community on the importance of actualizing Dr. King's ideals of social justice, non-violence, education, and service.
This year approximately 200 volunteers comprised of LSU students and staff and Shell-Geismar made it 'a day on not a day off' by coming out and helping revitalize the Old South Baton Rouge neighborhood.
