Location change: MLK’s Daughter, Grammy-Winner Singer To Mark King Celebration

OSWEGO — SUNY Oswego’s Jan. 29 Martin Luther King Jr. celebration will feature Bernice A. King, daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. and chief executive of the King Center, and Grammy-winning gospel singer Smokie Norful.

The college’s 27th annual celebration of the civil rights leader’s life and legacy has been moved to the college’s Hewitt Union ballroom to accommodate a larger audience.

It will begin with Bernice King’s keynote talk at 6 p.m. Norful and a gospel choir will perform at 8 p.m.

The evening’s events will be free and open to the public, but tickets will be required due to anticipated demand.

SUNY Oswego students can begin picking up tickets Jan. 25 at the Marano Campus Center box office.

Tickets will be available at the same location beginning Jan. 27 for SUNY Oswego faculty and staff and starting Jan. 28 for members of the general public.
