Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial Committee at Boston College
The thirty-first annual Martin Luther King, Jr., scholarship ceremony was held on February 4, 2013, in the Robsham Theater Arts Center at Boston College. Our featured speaker was Dr. Clayborne Carson, the Ronnie Lott Director of the Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute at Stanford University. The ceremony will be immediately followed by a reception in the Heights Room, on the second floor of Corcoran Commons.

Our Mission is to educate the Boston College Community about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, dream of social justice and equality.
The Committee continues to work toward that goal by sponsoring programs intended to help the Boston College community eradicate racism of all kinds through working toward understanding, appreciating, and celebrating its cultural diversity.
In addition, the Committee strives to honor Dr. King's memory by recognizing and encouraging the development of future leadership at Boston College through a scholarship in his name.
