Monday, Jan. 17, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. An official University holiday, it marks the beginning of Bucknell’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Week — a time for all of us to reflect on Dr. King’s legacy and philosophies, and consider them within the context of the struggles of today.

We invite you to join us in exploring this year’s theme, Mighty Causes Calling: Community, Coalition & Radical Revolution, through an array of events that will begin Monday and continue through Feb. 3rd.

A complete schedule is available on the MLK Week webpage. Masking and social distancing guidelines will be in place for all events. Please note that as the pandemic continues, details are subject to change, so be sure to check the website for updates prior to events.
