Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was widely regarded as America’s preeminent advocate of nonviolence. It’s been 50 years since he was assassinated, and Millersville University (MU) plans to honor his legacy with events scheduled on Jan. 21.

The day will include the ringing of the bells in the bell tower on campus at 11:45 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 21. The bell will ring 39 times for each year of King’s life. In addition, MU will host the 31st annual Crispus Atticks Community Center’s Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast, in Marauder Courts from 7 to 9 a.m. The keynote speaker will be John Hope Bryant, the founder of Operation Hope, the largest non-profit financial inclusion organization in the country. In 2016, Bryant was named American Banker magazine’s “Innovator of the Year,” and he was previously named one of Time Magazine’s “50 Leaders for the Future.”

Breakfast is from 7 – 9 a.m. in the Marauder Courts. Tickets are $75 or $750 for a table of 10.
