2021 Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium
The Cross-Cultural Center's Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium is one of the center’s signature programs and a longstanding UCI tradition. The January series featured several workshops, a virtual film screening, the annual Dr. Joseph L. White Lecture featuring artist and activist Bree Newsome Bass, and opportunities to participate in community boards.
Despite not being able to meet in person this year, the MLK Jr. Day of Service continued as an annual tradition, encouraging Anteaters to promote Dr. Martin Luther King's legacy through service to the community.
