The Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion invites you to the 35th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Celebration. In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the SDI Office provides and sponsors a MLK Freedom March and Celebration Program to honor the legacy of Dr. King.
 
The MLK Freedom March at Texas State begins at the LBJ Student Center mall area (between the Student Center and Alkek Library) and concludes in LBJ Student Center Ballroom. Texas State students, organizations, faculty and staff reenact a march similar to those conducted during the Civil Rights Movement. Upon conclusion of the march, participants enjoy a celebration program held in the LBJ Student Center Ballroom that honors Dr. King and other civil rights leaders, as well as their impacts on our civil liberties.
