Yesterday's Dream, Tomorrow's Promise
The Carrier Dome - January 19, 2013
The annual Martin Luther King Jr. Dinner Celebration, a community-wide tradition lasting more than a quarter of a century, is one of the nation’s largest celebrations of Dr. King’s legacy on a university campus, including a sit-down dinner for more than 2,000 people on the floor of the Carrier Dome, followed by a festive program featuring the keynote speaker. This year, it's NAACP Chairman Roslyn M. Brock.
Brock made history in February, 2010 when she became the youngest ever and fourth woman to serve as Chairman of the National Board of Directors, for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). A recipient of numerous healthcare, community service and leadership awards, Brock's achievements have most recently been highlighted in The Network Journal, Good Housekeeping, Forbes and Ebony magazines.
