Civil rights activist and organizer Bernard Lafayette Jr. was the keynote speaker Wednesday at UNK’s third annual MLK Day of Service at the Nebraskan Student Union on campus. He spoke on the theme of “Nonviolence in a Time of Civil Unrest.”
Following the keynote address, UNK students, employees and other guests were invited to participate in a service project that included a school supply drive and “letters of encouragement” for elementary students in Kearney, Lexington and Grand Island.
The event was organized by the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion, with funding provided by UNK Student Engagement and Loper Programming and Activities Council.
