The Washington and Lee University community this year enjoyed a series of events to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The events, which were planned by the Office of Inclusion and Engagement, included lectures and discussions, a basketball tournament, a tea ceremony and a children’s party.
The SABU basketball tournament on Jan. 20 allowed students to have fun and raise money in honor of Dr. King. Participants included W&L undergraduate and law students, faculty and staff. The event was open to the entire community.
The tournament, which is organized by the Student Association for Black Unity, is entirely student-planned and student-run.
All proceeds from the tournament will be donated to the Buena Vista nonprofit Saturday’s Child, an education and enrichment program for kids.
