Description

The program will begin at the MLK Garden by the MLK Statue (Located between Boone Hall and Welch Hall). Get directions.

Join members of the university and surrounding community as we reflect upon the historical significance of the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery March by thousands of non-violent demonstrators, and march across campus from the MLK Garden to the Student Center.

Marchers will gather at 3:30 p.m. at the MLK Garden, located by the east end of Welch Hall, for a brief commemorative program followed by the March, which will end at the Student Center. Individuals can join the march at any point along the route, similar to what occurred in the 1965 march.
