2016 MLK Jr. Unity Breakfast: The Spirit of Justice in a New Generation

The annual MLK Unity Breakfast was held on January 21, 2019 to recognize and celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King and his historic civic leadership that inspired a nation to strive for equality. This gathering honors the message of Dr. King and the progress he continues to inspire.

Our 2019 keynote speaker was is Dr. Boyce Watkins, one of the world's leading financial scholars and social commentators.

The Unity Breakfast was established by the Black Student Union to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King, and inspire members of the campus community to continue to work to make his vision of an equitable society a reality. The program recognizes students, faculty, and community members for outstanding service to the community through the Dream Awards which are presented during the program. 

This year's Unity Breakfast is co-presented by the Black Student Union and UW Tacoma.
