Danny Glover of Lethal Weapon and Angels in the Outfield fame is the keynote speaker for UNC’s 29th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration, UNC officials announced today.
Glover’s speech highlights the weeklong event, which runs from Jan. 17 to Jan. 22. The talk is free and open to the public and is set for 7:30 p.m. Jan. 21 at Memorial Hall. You will need a ticket, however. Students with UNC IDs get the first crack at them beginning Jan. 12. Everyone else can get two tickets starting Jan. 14 at the Memorial Hall box office.
Glover will address how King inspired him to use his celebrity platform fight for causes like health care and education.
