The program honors the life, legacy, and accomplishments of King. The theme for this year's event was “Black Faces in White Spaces” and featured a catered breakfast.

This year's keynote speaker was with scholar and award-winning author, Marc Lamont Hill, Ph.D.

"I feel like his legacy was kind of catalytic in reiterating the fact that everyone does have rights, deserves an education, and a right to feel human," said MLK Breakfast Director Tiara Kinnebrew.

After the breakfast, there was a meet and greet with Hill at the debut of the new Everybody Gaines exhibit at the Reynolds Gallery.
