Last month, MSU’s Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives sponsored the University’s 34th MLK Commemorative March. MSU students, faculty, alumni and friends braved the frigid weather to make the trek from the MSU Union through West Circle Neighborhood ending at Beaumont Tower.

This year’s march was one of several special events during MLK weekend that marked the start of Project 60/50 — a yearlong conversation and celebration of civil and human rights. Project 60/50 commemorates the 60th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Brown vs. Topeka Board of Education and the 50th anniversary of the of the Civil Rights Act — two pivotal moments in American civil rights history.

The project’s organizers have planned a series of events that will take place throughout 2014 including two exhibitions showing at the MSU Museum now through July.
