WHAT: Milwaukee and Atlanta, Georgia are the only cities to have celebrated Dr. King’s Birthday annually since 1984. The event is free admission and is open to the public. Parking is free and available at the Marcus Center Parking Structure on East State Street.
The Celebration will commence at 1:00 PM in Uihlein Hall and will include a multi-cultural performing arts salute to Dr. King.
