Location change: MLK's daughter, Grammy-winner singer to mark King celebration


January 22, 2016

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. As of Jan. 28, the event was sold out.

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.
