The rededication is also being made possible through efforts of the college’s Diversity Council and the new Black Student Union (BSU). BSU’s president, members of the Visual Communications department, and campus leadership will give speeches during the ceremony.

Afterwards, everyone is invited to a free lunch in the college’s Student Life Commons that includes pulled meat sandwiches (chicken, pork, and beef), chips, beans, and more. Attendees may also receive a stuffed bear with an MLK quote t-shirt.
