The community is invited to attend the 3rd annual Martin Luther King Jr. Unity and Prayer Celebration at 8 a.m. Friday, Feb. 23, at Lander University. The event was originally scheduled for earlier in the month but was postponed due to hazardous winter weather conditions.

Sponsored by Lander's Division of Student Affairs, the MLK Unity and Prayer Celebration is one in a series of special events and programs held for students and the community in honor of February's Black History Month.
