UC Riverside will host a candlelight vigil and tribute in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. next week.
The vigil is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at the flagpole next to Hinderaker Hall.
Participants will then walk up the mall and past the bell tower to Life Sciences 1500 for a tribute show.
UCR staff, students and faculty and residents are invited.
The event and parking are free, university spokesman Ross French said.
The show will include spoken tributes and music, according to organizers.
The tribute and vigil are hosted by the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, Pi Epsilon chapter. King was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha, joining the Sigma Chapter while a graduate student at Boston University in 1952.
“This memorial is not just for black students. Dr. King’s work benefited all people, regardless of their skin color,” Ken Simons, director of African Student Programs at UCR, said. “I hope to see a wide variety of people coming out to the event.”
